3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz. can served in a Kuhnhenn snifter. Big thanks to my mom for picking me up a 4-pack on her recent trip through Indy.
A: Pours a clear orange color with a thin, wispy white head forming on the pour. it recedes to a thin ring that leaves some minor splotches of lace down the glass.
S: Light grass on the nose with some mild citrus. Some fruity berry, akin to strawberries as you pass by them in the grocery store. Very faint, but you can pick them out. Light cracker malts with a touch of stale bread.
T: Lots of bready malts with the same light strawberry note coming through. A little sweet, but slightly watered down with a touch of grassy.
M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. A little bland on the finish.
O: This was alright. Decent enough to drink and it’d make a fine camping beer, but it’s pretty bland and forgettable overall.
Serving type: can

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 1 pint can.Pours a crystal clear, light copper with a bubbly, one finger, white head.Aroma is slight with notes of bread, citrus, and slightly floral. Taste is slightly bitter and floral with notes of pine, resin, citrus, a mildly dry, bitter aftertaste. Low to medium body. Medium carbonation. Pretty clean in the mouth and very refreshing. Not a bad brew. Slightly better on draft I believe. Would get again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can pours a clear light orange color with small white head ad good lacing. Aroma is full of citrus fruits, bready malts, and and a bit of pine. Taste is bitter, but not outrageously so, with some malt sweetness in the middle and some pine coming out in the long finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. A very good APA, and my first from Sun King.
