The texture is light with bitter aftertaste. Nothing especially prominent, easy to drink but lacks character

Bomber from BevMo Salinas. Nose is floral and hints of citrus. Very lightly hazy urine yellow with a medium yellow tinged head (should be drunk out of a urine sample cup?) Flavor is lightly bitter with lemony citrus hints.

Bottled 0,65l (bottle bought in Portland, OR)
Deep golden color, small white head. Bready malty, honeyish, a bit herbal aroma. Medium-bodied. Sticky leafy, grassy hoppyness with woody-piney notes. Lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Aroma was a bit off, but flavorwise a solid brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly clouded orange hue, delicate but enduring head formation. Herbal, hoppy aroma, a little mint, mild caramel malt. Some caramel but very light on the malt, fair amount of hop citrus in the finish makes this more of a refresher than a serious pale ale. At least it drinks well while there’s a nice touch of orange in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bomber into a glass. Seemed fitting as we have been having a really wet spring. Pours a light amber color, amd pretty clear. Decent head with lacing. Aroma is grassy and earthy. Flavour is also earthy. Mouthfeel is watery, definitely thin and finishes bitter. Overall this is not the best impression of ninkasi, hopefully their other stuff is better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a somewhat cloudy bright golden orange color with an inch-thick, rocky off-white head that leaves some lace in the Duvel tulip. Aroma of dry grains, toasted malts, fresh cut grass, toasted sugars, straw, and herbs. Flavor of grassy and floral hops, pale and sweet malts, faint soap, and limestone. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mineral mouthfeel. A little mouth-coating bitterness as well. Decent APA.

The Spring Reign ale is an interesting flavorful beer. Its aroma can be characterized as floral and hoppy. It looks golden yellow and unfiltered, as well as pouring a light head. First taste resonates a floral flavor followed by a medium bitter sweet hoppy malt finish. The body of this beer is medium with a long astringent finish.
