3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
19th April 2013
Hazy amber beer with a huge pale cream coloured head. Lovely nose of pineapple, mint, pine and tropical fruits. Palate is light and airy and a little crisp. Minerals. Thin malt, a little cream. Slightly watery hops, little pineapple, marmalade, pine and mild tropical fruits. Finishes crispy with a touch of lime. Yellow grapefruit aftertaste. Nice complexity here - but it could have done with more intensity.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
MBGSF 12 Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

A good amount of taste and drinkability for a lower abv beer, kudos for that craftsmanship.Not the usual hop flavour, citrus and the like. Yet the IBU is clearly there if not a bold taste. Drying finish. Lighter yellow with a quarter-inch of retained head.FlandersNed recent.

It goes some places, but not all the way. Citrus and earthiness, dry finish. Lacks a good maltiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Bottled 03/21/13. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Half-finger thin bubbly white head. Good thick rows of lace. Lighter body. Good crisp lighter carbonation, more dry in the finish. Very nice grassy hop aroma, nice earthy hop, some herbal.. Light bitter, light sweet, little zesty, bit of savory taste. One of the better satisfyingly hoppy session brews I’ve ever had.. Love that it’s such a low ABV, too. It’s not unquestionably a "session brew" until it’s below 4%

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange peel, grapefruit, spice and a hint of floral notes into some caramel, toffee in there. Taste is a mix of grass, grapefruit, yeast, spice, some orange, hints of caramel, finishing bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at The Beer Spot GTMW Eve Event at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a nice deeper hazed shady orange hue. A dulled glow, nice egdes. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a decent filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are grapefruit rind, juice, and a bit of lemon. Some more rind oils, juicy quality, some gentle bready malt. Dry and firmly citrus driven. Initial is small body, light, and dry. A bit bitter. Small body lends itself a decent bitterness, touches of soap, florals, mellow grapefruit and citrus. Not as powerful as the nose. Middle is small bodied, decent with some session qualities. Some decent fruit, bread, dry grainy feel. Backend is dry, firmly bitter for it’s size. Some resiny and rind qualities. Grapefruit, lemon, oils. Finish is dry, resiny and rind driven. Nice rind presence and citrus flavor without being tart, real bitter, or pulpy. Nice session beer.
