Deep purple, orange and light brown coloured body with a very rich, five centimetre tall tan head - super wierd in colour - funky at best. Aroma of spices, curacao, malt, flowers and some odd fake sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt, metal, cardboard, flowers, funk and wierd spices - odd. Aftertaste shows the glimmer of curacao, but mostly odd malt and funky spices - and that’s it. Overall, a very very poor offering. I’m not sure what they meant by this, but this needs to never be bottled again, especially by Smuttynose proper. Do NOT be fooled by the high ratings per style - this one is awful no matter what it’s characterised as - this isn’t a Premium Lager, but it IS bad. I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased yesterday at New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 19-June-2015 for US$7,25 sampled a day later in my hotel room here on the LES of New York on 20-June-2015. mansquito (6989) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle: pours copper with a loose white head. Aroma is light fruitiness, straw, and lager. Taste is somewhat hoppy but not full fledged IPL in my opinion. Not bad. Drake (14110) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle from the brewery, shared at a tasting, 4/27/15. Hazy golden, large foamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of citrus, tropical hops, mild chlorine and pale malts. The taste is bitter citrus and piney hops, pale malt. Thin bodied, moderate lingering bitterness. jackl (8454) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle @ FUAD tasting. Thanks, Drake! Medium gold with a small head. Nose of caramelised Orange peel. Some popcorn. Sort of strange and sweet. Taste is overly sweet, has notes of cardboard. Meh.

Tap at stags head. Yellow beer fairly ordinary looking. Nose is light florals and hay. Tastes of hay, floral, orange rind, bread, and cardboard. Standard mouthfeel. Kinda boring. Cool_Bond (2813) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Light fragrance of fruitiness. The taste is good, fruity and floral. Slightly bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Okay beer. No ordinary lager beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. drsandman (1656) - New York, USA - MAR 22, 2015
