Lambent orange soft foam head with profuse bubbles. Sanitized, stank hops with a brush of apricot skin in the nose. Light flavor, reflective of the aroma, but with a slightly sour finish

This scotch colored amber left a diffuse tingly hop presence in the mouth, but otherwise was rather dull and flat. Not bad, but not quite good either--just unimpressive.

This is not a very good beer at all. Even at 2.99 rating it is still overrated. No reason I can think of as to why you would want to partake of this. Its almost more offensive than the crappy macros.

1-22-08 bottle.
Clear orange amber with little head. Very light subtle smell. First thing that I can notice is the overly carbonated palate. Citris tasting. In all honesty, this tastes identical to lime perrier!! Nothing else to it - it is really just lime perrier. Interesting - seems like a clone. Not beer-like at all though.

light copper color with little head. taste was alright but did have the skunk taste of a bud light or miller light. wouldn’t purchase again unless i was out to eat and it was the only option.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Clear orange/amber coloured body with a very thin slightly off-white head. Some bubbles rise from the bottom, but not many. Aroma of fresh hops, some malt, a bunch of nuts and a little spice. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour with a prolonged nutty and yeastie flavour with an aftertaste of pure bread. Somewhat complex up front fading to a quick one-dimensional flavour that lasts and lasts. Overall, not a great beer - definitely one that could be passed up for better seasonals. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia, bottled on 04.February.2008, drunk on 17-March-2008.

Pale copper body, small white head with large bubbles. Not much aroma at all. Flavor is floral hoppiness and citric. Bitter crisp finish. Nothing special.

BeerandBlues2 (9457) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Bottle. Pours amber, orange with a patchy white head. Aroma is malt (grain, meal, cereal), yeast (sweat, horse blanket) and slight fruit notes (apple, peach). Medium bitterness and acidity, low to no sweetness, metal and grainy malt flavor, fading grain and meal flavor. Light bodied and slightly fizzy palate.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
My initial impression upon first waft isn’t a good one. Beer pours a vivid, clear, light orange color with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain; hoppy with a trace note of resin/pine; yeasty with fairly unsettling moderately weighty notes of cheddar cheese and a trace note of tangy dirty diaper. The flavor is a flatline: lightly bitter, lightly sweet with an average-length, trace sweet, husky finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average.

The beer’s color is a little more yellow than expected. Lemon and citrus flavors. Meh.

Palidor19 (2931) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Not to thrilled with this one. Its got a fruitiness that doesn’t seem to work with this type of beer. Malts are very much apparent yet it still lacks the proper flavors to make this a real quality beer.
