Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and pine. Taste is light malts and moderate bitterness. Light bodied; crisp. Smells like an ipa; tastes like a weak ipa. Still, pretty good for this category.

I bought the variety pack for the maple pecan ale. But this one was definitely the best out of all of them, the citrus flavor was terrific and everything tasted so well together

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Part of the Spring Thaw sampler pack. Pours a clear amber with a bright white head that has good retention and leaves behind lots of sticky lacing. Aroma and taste of fresh hops, grapefruit, pine, citrus and malts. Very crisp and fresh tasting. Great citrus and hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body, sticky, creamy body, average carbonation. Being a lager gives this an original taste and mouthfeel. An excellent session beer!

Bottle.Clear amber gold with a big off white head. Clean malty base, with bitter piney and citric hops, followed by a bitter finish. Clean, light, hoppy, refreshing, and cheap (relatively). This beer at this price point is a very awesome thing.

12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent honey color with a think quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of grapefruit, bread, and floral. Taste is of corn flakes, citrus, earth, and a very mild pine flavor. Very light but not too thin. Dry finish that has an odd unpleasant lingering taste.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a clear amber with little to none off white head that went away very quickly. Aroma of grain and some hops and a bit of malts. Flavor is mostly bitter hops (but not overwhelming), citrus and grassy flavors balanced with a bit of sweetness from malts. Drinkable.
