16 oz can. pours a brilliant orange tinged amber with an eggshell head. Sweet, light caramel and orange nose. Nice, light bready flavor, light tangerine/orange zest late. Finish is clean and slightly dry. Excellent sessionable sipper.

In a can. Sparklingly summery beer, near-sessionable, and with lots of orangey sweetness. Sixpoint’s description promises bitter, but all I got here was sweet orange and not a lot of, say, orange peel. Still, nice.

Can from JD Wetherspoons at Merry Hill. Small head and slightly cloudy. Bitterness dominates with a lasting bitter finish. Not quite what I anticipated but stilll quite pleasant.

One of the selling points of Sixpoint beers is they come in little skinny cans which just look like energy drinks or something to a casual observer and thus you can drink them w/o being rudely interrupted by Chicago Transit Authority staff--not that I would ever do such a thing, mind you. In any case, the description on this stealthy CTA-ready can makes the beer sound like it’s going to be some heavily malt centric Amber or something but it’s actually more along the lines of an American Pale Ale. It is orange in color with a small white head that leaves behind little patches of lacing. The nose is very much focused on American hops, smells like pine w/ a slight savory character. Flavor is a touch sweet and the main thing I am noticing is a flavorful tea leaf astringent note and a touch lemon and mandarin orange from the hops. It is medium bodied but still feels pretty light on the palate thanks to moderate carbonation. It finishes w/ a resinous bitterness and some lingering sugary malt character. This definitely isn’t a bad beer for drinking on the bus or train... I mean anywhere but the bus or train.

(On tap) Clear amber with some white head. Little aroma. Light body with plenty of fine bright carbonation. Very unusual taste. Part beer, part cream soda. However it isn't particularly sweet. There's some decent bitterness, some vinous notes, a little pepper and hints of butter. Different and enjoyable.

Interesting. One of the sweetest beers I’ve ever had. Strong flavor of honey. Malt forward, not much hop character. Not much hop character either. Very drinkable. Could serve as a good beer to get people into drinking craft beer.

Det här var en skön, men trött, sak, kroppen var okej och balansen skön. Smaken bar toner av citrus och annat gott, tack för trevlig upplevelse.

Pours honey golden with some rocky head. Nose is floral hops, citrus grapefruit, a bit of crackery malt. Taste is hops, citrus, crisp malt, a sweet caramel thing is in there but not overdone, mild bitterness on the finish. Creamy but not thick, very smooth and refreshing. Solid.
