radarsock (897) - Vermont, USA - DEC 11, 2013
$2.99 for the 650mL purchased from town. Okay.. why does this tastes so strange? Kitty litter, cabbage, hops, and celery, were my first thoughts. Maybe a little toothpaste to the side. Forgettable.

StueyD (1145) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
A bright golden orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light hoppy aroma, citrusy and grassy. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off bitter and hoppy, pithy citrus fruit peel, then there is a sweeter, though not cloying, maltiness that comes through towards the end, balancing out the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
