2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 2. The bottle date is 09/24/14. Whoops. The aroma is immediately mash stage up front. The sweet potato is huge. There is a little bitter orange rind in the way back. A strong maltiness and a light hop kind of fills out the rest of it. This is definitely old. The mustiness is definitely a turn off. This should be interesting. The flavor is an absolute malt bomb. There is a bitter citrus on the back end. It's something else. It's bitter and just not good to be honest. It's plain and basic. The mouth feel is horrible. There is no carbonation and it's very syrupy and a little heavy. I'm not a fan of this one. Maybe I should've enjoyed it earlier than 18 months after bottling.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #2. Bottled September 24, 2014. Whoops. Aroma is old hops, malt, just smells like an old beer, mash, orange rind, I?m not looking forward to it. Appearance is dark golden, white head, clear. Taste is malt, mash, orange rind, bitter, not good. Mouthfeel is medium body, but there is nearly no carbonation, mash and rind aftertaste. Overall, it?s old and not good, perhaps I?ll need to revisit this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, yeast into nice pine, slight orange peel, grapefruit into a bit of spice, floral notes as well come through. Taste was a mix of floral hops, some orange, grapefruit, some pine into a bit of bread, biscuit, some slight honey, finishing bitter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a lightly hazed pale gold color with a fizzy white head. The aroma is oranges and grass with some green onion and light florals. The flavor is the same. The orange is thankfully kept to a minimum with more dank onion and grass. A decent amount of citrus bitterness with hints of orange sweetness. Very flavorful for a low gravity lager. A bit messy, but interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly skunky with earthy orange and grass flavors, and a bready malt body. Not too bad, but nothing great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had high hopes based on the score. This is definitely not going to rank as a favorite. Pours a light orange, with a head that quickly disappears to lacing. Didn’t get much out of the nose. light citrus. Has a hoppy and citrus taste, but is very watery.
Overall, this is a pass

Loads of citrus zest blended with flavors of grainy bread, floral hops, and a crisp pine finish. Nice hop bitterness throughout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A bit of orange on the nose. There’s a hint of floral on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but nothing spectacular.
