2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks like there are three different beers with this same name, call the lawyers. this one is extremely pale yellow with a massive white head. Aroma of straw and subtle white pepper. Taste is bittersweet cardboard. High carbonation interferes with the flavor.

12 ounce can shared by MaltDawg at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear golden color with a HUGE frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of intensely grassy hops and a bit of corn. The taste is pale malts, grassy hops, a bit of corn. Thin bodied, highly carbonated. Wat?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden color with a large white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted dough, grass, citrus, and some toffee. Taste of toffee malts, toast, light grass, and faint crisp wheatiness. High carbonation. Actually exceeded my expectations given the brewery and the stories of these cans.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Super gusher, as everyone knows from it exploding all over the convention center. With low expectations after bringing this unexploding grenade on the train, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Pours mostly head at first, then quite hazy lemon with a whitish tan head. The aroma is a bit sweet, bringing some vanilla and lemon and wheat. The flavor is sweet as well, a bit crisp and some light lemony notes.
