2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear amber with a head that is just off white. Aroma is a blend of floral hops and bread. But this could be generous, as it leans towards a neutral. I might get a bit of caramel in there actually. The taste is much more of the same. Not much really to note except that there is a really yeasty flavor that is prevalent throughout. Thankfully, there isn’t really any aftertaste, although that yeastiness does linger slightly. Surprisingly, this is light in body considering that this is a little stronger. The texture is thin and slick. I don’t like to be rude, but to call this something seasonal in any season, especially the winter, is kind of insulting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 12 ounce can. I didn’t notice all the merits that the brewers mentioned in their description. It has an amber appearance and abundant white foam. The aroma is generally malty. The taste is metallic and grainy. Palate is light side of medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty pedestrian.

Skummet dör jättefort, annars lite röd/amber färg. Skönt sur men inget speciellt.

Fruktig ich frisk i aromen men en gel del humle. Hyffsad balans i smaken kanske lätt i kroppen
