500ml bottle BB 12/6/15 into a pint glass. Bought from 'Grandstand Farmers Market', Singapore

A - Clear pale amber, thin foam head (3mm) which remained intact for 10+ minutes.
S - Lemony citrus, lychees
T - Bam, citrus! With the perfumed aroma of lychees too. Followed by hops and some dry bitter notes
M - Nice mouthfeel, neither thin nor too heavy.
D - Fresh and zesty. Like a slightly more bitter version of a spicy Paulaner weissbrau or similar Munich beer. Very pleasant drinking for out in the tropics, where something 'interesting but refreshing' is rare and appreciated.

- The label has evolved, and is quite a bit jazzier than the one shown above.

A: This poured a clear straw with quickly dissipating white head and chunky sediment.
S: It smelled like skunky lager yeast and faint citrus hops.
T: It tasted like watery citrus and pine hops, with some skunky later yeast. It had a somewhat dirty bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thin with lots of carbonation. Very bubbly body.
D: This was a poor brew. The scent and taste and body were all far below average. It didn't even look good. Not very easy to drink either, almost a drain pour.
