3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is the 2014 215 Special Ale version. Mini growler fill at brewery. Pours a hazy gold with small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, and what I can only describe as xmas spices. Taste was pretty much the same, but the spices took over. I was kind of surprised because I wasn’t expecting that. Medium body and carbonation. Mildy bitter to start, but finishes more bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s light & drinkable & a step up from blue moon. Not one of southern tier’s better efforts but I guess it works for a 90 degree day like today. Certainly forgettable but not terrible. Blah

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is golden with a lot of haze, appearing opaque. The head is thin and short lived, only a thin ring is left.
Aroma: The aroma is mild with lemon and some sulfur and light malts.
Taste: Light malts with some citrus ranging from lemon to hints of orange are throughout, some toasted notes and a semi-dry finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Whatever this is, it’s boring and unappealing to me. Pass.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Blue Monkey. I did like the nice hop presence, and good amount of caramel malt. However, it didn’t wow me. It was thin in the body, slightly soapy. But drinkable.

Draught at the brewery.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head.
Aroma is exotic fruity (citrus, pineapple) pleasant smooth bitterness combined with some sweetness. Citrusy hops and bitterness in dryish summery fresh flavour. Slightly watery. Bitterness stays forever.
