Got this one a while ago. Forgot about it in the fridge.

Poured into a pint glass. I guess i knew after i finished the pouring routine that this won't be some special something. Light copper appearance. 1mm lacing with no retention. It vanished right away.

Smells of fresh earth and some dust. The good part doesn't come together. I would like to smell flowers and that little hint of tangerine in the front, not covered by mud and vacuum bag.

The taste fortunately doesn't follow the nose all the way. Elderflower present, malty with some bitter sweet hop finish. Nice but nothing to die for.
The mouth feel is fuzzy. It doesn't make me a bit curios about finishing the beer.

It's not a Champion. Not even golden.

3.9/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Pours a pale copper with a finger width of white bubbly head.

Smell- Straw, floral notes, citrus, grassy

Taste- Light grass and citrus flavours are predominate followed by floral notes and buttery malts. Finishes with a light bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light carbonation and a slight fluffiness.

Overall- A pleasant EPA by Badger. I enjoyed the citrus and floral notes to this brew. The aromas could be more pronounced but otherwise very drinkable and worth a try.
