3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden coloured body with a light soapy white head. Aroma of skunk, coconuts, pale malt, corn, coriander seed and a hint of grass and quite a bit of hay. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong hay flavour with some earth and cardboardie malts noticeable with a hint of alcohol and a definite but hard to notice coconut and odd fruit sweetness that hits hard. Aftertaste shows a skunky flavour with some cardboard and other assertive bitter notes. Overall, an interesting and relatively complex beer, for the style. Not a horrible beer to sample, but not the best value for money, especially from this brewer. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased on 24-November-2012 at Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington, Virginia for US$10.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-December-2012.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy gold with a small white head. The nose smells of musty corn feed. The flavor is rotten buttered popcorn with notes of coconut and dirt. Reminds me of feeding the steers as a kid. This one is total crap and a drain pour. At least with BMC there is a note of bitterness and a light mouthfeel. This one is heavy and has no balance. Retched.

750ml bottle from Kinz. Pours clear golden with white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, and a bit of fruity. Flavor was grains, wheat, citrus, and some tropical fruit. Nice body and carbonation. Did not get any type of buttery notes. Better than I thought it was going to be. Refreshing and drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus and tropical floral. Taste is sweet with what seems to be tropical notes, I am surprised by this. Light bodied with smooth texture. The tropical elements made this very interesting.

Very pale. Good white head. There’s not a lot to the flavor and aroma. Just a bit of grain and very little sweetness.
