1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Really really weird. Smells like cleaning solution and taste is so off-putting I really don’t know what to write to be constructive. Lot of lemon and cleaning solution (lemon pinesol) everywhere.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear straw gold with lots of bubbles and a small white head. The aroma is surprisingly orangey with some lemon-balm and mint notes. The flavor is mostly lime with a little bit of a grainy wheat note. Not much else going on here. Finish is clean but somewhat bland. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy yellow with large white head. moderate carbonation. lemon and ginger to the nose. mild bitterness before a lot of lemon and ginger spice, with the flavor being almost like a spicy lemon lolipop. not familiar with the style, an english summer ale, but this beer as a whole is not overly drinkable or enjoyable

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is bread, spices: chamomile, ginger, and some pepper. Flavor is similar with the ginger character walking all over a lot of the beer’s nuances. Light to medium body and not bad.

draft @ OTH.
clear golden, thin white head
aroma, lime, lemongrass with some ginger spices, a rather welcoming fresh aroma.
flavors, lots of lime here, some grains and a lingering mild ginger profile and a touch of coriander. The malt profile is faint and the whole experience reminds me more of a lemonade with extra spices.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hazed golden appearance with an average size white head and moderate lacing. All the lime , and some lemon, in the aroma is quite evident in the taste as well. Aftertaste displays more of the ginger and coriander spicyness. Medium-to-light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel, with a short lived finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent bright golden with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Aroma of dry grassy hops and grainy pale malt. Flavor is mild with some effervescent carbonation and grassy floral bittering hops with a touch of lemon zest before a dry slightly earthy finish. Pretty dull and not as drinkable as one might think.
