3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a can. I keep getting more and more surprised when I see beers in cans, and they actually do not taste like metal. This is actually a decent, very easy to drink session beer. Pours out a dark brown / yellow color from the can. Smell is malty and sweet with a little hops in the mix. Taste is smooth and refreshing, rich and flavorful. A pretty decent beer, and its following the trend of beers that arent half bad in the can. Could drink quantities of this beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can: Pours to a mostly clear, though it is very slightly hazy speaking to course filtering, amber colored body with a large, frothy, thick and lasting eggshell colored head. The aroma is shows a fruity diacetyl, dms (yet another one from SKA), light biscuit, and hints of stale hops. The diacetyl and dms mess here is nowhere near as bad as their blonde ale - this one reminds me more of a poorly cared for english mild, stale & oxidized on cask. Taste is fruity butter, floral/grassy hops (though not very bitter), light biscuit, and sweet caramelized malt extract. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Out of a can, pours w/ a small white head. Lots of bubbles comming up to the top. Nose of faint malt and biscut aromas. plate of thin stale malt. High carbonation ending with a rather astrigent bitter hop finish. Not much hop aroma. ends with a slightly sour biscut flavor. Not impressed.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Part of my never ending quest to rate every micro-can I can find. Orange colored beer with a big white head. Slight citrus aroma with lots of malt. Thin bodied with a smooth but unpleasantly so mouthfeel. Fruity malt flavors. ugh

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tangerine orange pour with a small layer of white head that leaves a nice crown of lace. Light floral and hard candy aroma. Mild resiny bitternerss blending pleasantly with sweet malt and a just a touch of tartness in the finish. Very light on the palate--almost watery, but leaning toward refreshing rather than insipid. Pleasant, flaw-free, but not particularly memorable.

Pours beautiful deep golden color w/ shallow spritzy froth. Aroma is full malt. Medium nectar w/ ample resdual effers. Flavors are cripy clean w/ a defined bittering character. Malty citrus rind. Overall: one of the best canned brews ever. Highly recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can acquired in a trade with FlactoAlto (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, stronger pineapple, and lightly nutty. Tastes of lighter caramel, citrus, and fruity. This one was definitely fruity sweet with a light hoppiness to it.
