czar (8823) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
can. pours cloudy extra pale yellow with a small creamy white cap offering some retention and lacing. lean crackery cereals, peppered rice concoction, citrus essence - clementines for instance; other citrus, some peel, coconut traces - sorachi ace confirmed; hint of acidity enhancing drinkability - kombucha-like, white pepper. moderate carbonation, light body - kind of watery but eh; crispy and zippy citrusy finish. not really complex but a finely tuned modernly lightly hopped very pale session pale it is.

Karol (907) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 21, 2016
Can from an LCBO in Toronto Canada. Fill date 12 August 2016. Pours a very hazy dark golden color like pear juice. Ugly color. Good head. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus fruits. Taste follows the aroma. Good body. Refreshing. But the color is ugly, like mud. Edit: probably a bad batch or bad storage of the cans. The hoppiness tasted worse and worse with each sip. I drained it.

googleimage83 (143) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Aroma is hops, pine, lemon, grass, slight peach - light and inviting. Body is hazy and very pale gold, with a nice persistent head and gorgeous lacing. Taste is very dry. Nice citric hops and astringent peach/apricot flavours. Long finish is unbalanced - grapefruit pith and a little soap, which really dampens the refreshing character. Still a good beer, but its not the summer quencher I was hoping for.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
Draft. Straw yellow in colour with medium carbonation. Flavors are of hay, cut grass, and spent yeast. Very grainy and dry on the palate. Some green hop and dried herbs are present, but theres an odd husky/papery finish that kinda spoils it. Disappointing.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 16, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Maxs place. Thanks troubles. Cloudy yellow with a soapy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citric, with a slightly stale note. Flavor is quite dry, with nice moderately bitter fruity hops. Quite light-bodied. Refreshing.

Tropical fruit and straw on the nose. Grapefruit and lemon hops with a bit of a floral on the tongue. Very nice. Great summer quencher.
