Super light smell that is light and hard to place, a bit too hoppy taste for me after that it’s super watery, pretty bland beer, nothing special...

Tap...pale golden pour with floral hop aroma. Light pine/citrus hops over a smooth wheat malt bill. Nice, clean crisp mouthfeel and finishes with a dry and somewhat bitter bite.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5513) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized foamy off white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet pine with a hint of must. The flavor was tangy and tart with a bit of chalk, pine and cactus. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied.

rosenbergh (8527) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
One pint can. Canned on 11/19/14. (El Cerrito Liquors) Corona, CA. Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Piney and mild resiny hops, moderate bitterness and some malty sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is very nice with piney, resiny and citrus hops, moderate bitterness, sweetness and dryish malt. Tastes pretty damn good after traveling 30 without sleep. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tropical fruits such as pineapple, melon, and hints of pine round out the aromas. A slightly hazy orange body with a cap that receded quickly but is leaving some spotty lace. Mouthfeel is prickly from the carbonation. Flavor is old pine sap, with a touch of booze on the back side, the malts cut down on the hoppiness. Overall the flavor is a bit of a letdown considering the aroma, but its not too shabby.

arminjewell (8606) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, peach, pear into a bit of wheaty spice with pepper, some hints of coriander into a bit of biscuit, more pine, grass comes in. Taste was a mix of grass, pine, orange peel into a bit of wheat spice, pepper, hints of biscuit, some nice white fruit with peach, pear, finishing slightly dry, bitter.

473ml can. Totally bizarre marketing. I mean bizarre. I figured out what it was about by looking at the description here but that does not exist on the can. Pours a hazed gold, nice frothy white head. Aroma is citrus and a bit of herbs. Flavor has some herbs, caramel, fairly mild bitternes,s citrus, some acidity. Its pretty mediocre.

This is a solid beer. A nice hop aroma. A light but efficient hop to the mouthfeel. Nice.
