It was…bland? Boring? It’s not BAD. You can drink it. Light malt, bittersweet finish. But I get the feeling if it wasn’t for the overabundance of carbonation, this would have been really bad. It wasn’t just light carbonation—it was exploding out of the bottle, making you feel like you were going to explode, too, carbonation. I wouldn’t seek it out again.

Poured from a bomber into tulip. Attractive dark amber with some opacity. Thick off white head with modest retention but minimal lacing. The aroma of jolly rancher green apple candy is appealing with some funk. Taste falls a little short of the promising aroma, it's ok, well better than ok but Something's missing...mouthfeel is fine, not overly carbonated. Overall enjoyable and good representative of the style. Buy it.

12 oz bottle poured into a darth Vader pint glass.

Pours cloudy amber with a copious head of foam. Aroma is malty with a sour fruitiness. This is a bit thin bodied with a mild malt bite and bitter finish. Not terribly exciting and has a bit of a fruity off flavor. Not recommended.
