3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(22oz bottle courtesy of BeerSommelier!!). Pours hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has some cardboard, wood, citrus, florals, and honey? Taste has a nice sweet malt backbone (honey-like notes again coming through) with a little hop bite and spicyness from the rye. Light to medium bodied with a slick texture. Slightly bitter and smooth finish. This is a very refreshing beer, but it also has some nice complexities. Definitely worth a try. Thanks Matt!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into my Narke tulip, thanks to Sean...Light peach pour, ok retention and lacing...Super sweet aroma, caramel, corn, light grapefruit and rye. Too sweet and it doesn’t stand up here....The taste is super boring, almost dead flavor. Light rye on the back but thats about the only thing that comes through. Its not offensive at all, just doesn’t make me want to continue to drink or, nor does it allow me recommend it.

Taste : Nice citrus and fruity hops. Nice notes floral notes. Great malt and nice notes of spicy rye. Finish fruity and citrusy with light rye and great malt. Carbonation is very soft which makes it very drinkable.
Overall : Very drinkable and refreshing. Great carbonation level. Great nose and finish. Nice fruits and nice rye. I know I’ve waited too long to have this one (sorry Aaron) but it’s still very tasty. I love how Sweetwater makes nice, tasty, low alcohol, drinkable beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark opaque gold color with a frothy white head. The aroma is upfront rye, pine hops and nuts. The flavor is sweet with a slight rye bitterness in the finish. The palate is surprisingly light and smooth. Overall, a very delicious beer.

The pour is clear gold with a tall white head that falls a bit quickly.into a thin foam on top.
Citrus hop aroma.
The taste is lightly bitter delivered with a crisp mouthfeel. Reminds me somewhat of a Dormunder style Pilsner.

(22oz bomber) clearish yellow-orange with a lasting film of white bubbles with excellent lacing. Nose of dank weed, fresh oranges, rye and other candied citrus fruits. Taste of rye, cracker, orange juice, a bit muted overall. Oily body that is medium-to-thin with a weak linger.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hazy straw yellow color with a thin layer of white head that sticks around as you sip leaving behind spotty lacing.
Aroma is ok, but not a whole lot going on here - I really just get a slight hint of citrus and some hoppy scents. Flavor is bolder and has a medium bitterness to it. Tasty.
Mouthfeel is a bit flat, but not bad - this one is very easy to drink. Would definitely try this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Relatively clear dark gold. The flavor is nicely hoppy. There’s a surprising toasty flavor in this. I didn’t expect it with the lighter color. Probably the rye. Slight soapy or sunscreen in the finish.
