Can from Liz. Pours light amber with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma: cat pee is next to godliness. Itís not all that simple, but itís a very citrus aroma. Near med body. Flavor is a lot of citrus hop over a barely noticeable malt backbone. Finishes spicy/hoppy. Just excellent.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear gold with a thin white head. Weird perfumy aroma with some floral hops and some sweet malty toffee/caramel undertones. Flavor was the same with some sweet caramel/toffee tones with some nice moderate bitterness and a lovely citric/floral hop flavor. Pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can 50 cl, tnx to Kan. Pours clear orange amber with a nice creamy beige head leaving lacing. Aroma is hoppy, piny, malty, slightly caramel, bready and wet leaves. Flavor is malty, piny, a bit acidy in front. More round maltyness with dryish piny and grapefruit bitterness with some fruity apple/pears touch from the middle towards the end which is more dry. Good longlived dry bitter finish. A bit too watery body, yet very drinkable and refreshing.

Can, as pictured, courtesy of Howard. Poured a clear gold. Smells of grassy notes and citrus hops. Very drinkable, great example of the style, I think. Simple but well made. Would love to have more of this, but alas...
