Poured into a pint glass this brew is very pale yellow colored with less than a 1/4 finger white head that was gone before I could put the bottle down. Very active carbonation visible. There wasn't much aroma to this. Some slight malt and a little orange. My first taste of this was horrible. I have really tried to get on the local bandwagon for O'so but it just isn't happening for me. They have a few brews that are exceptional, but most of their line-up is not even worth trying. The taste was flat and bland. No hops present, slight malt to this. Just a pale poor beer.

A - Zero head. Not looking good so far. The body is a hazy orangish-yellow.

S - Sweet malt aroma with hints of mango.

T - Let me start out by stating it will be very difficult to get a real gauge of the taste here because this beer is completely flat. I will however do my best to distinguish that flavor ever though the texture is awful. It has a sweet malt flavor followed by a finish of hops.

M - Like I said, there is nothing here that helps this beer. It is flat and I'm not going to finish it.

~ I will get another and hope that it doesn't fail me again.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours an orange tinged light gold color with quick foam that dissolves into nothing. No lacing.

Citrus smell with light malt. Mild spice.

Taste is a slightly sour orange rind. Finish is orange. Very prominent. Lightly carbonated.

Drinks easy, but a little heavy on the fruit.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a clear dark orange body with a pale white head of bubbles that boils into a thin ring. There is a quick carbonation of bubbles pushing to the surface.

S- The clean aroma only has a slight tart note when it warms.

T- The gentle taste of dirt and pale malt lead to a faint corn hint with some green hop hues in the finish. There is a cream note in the finish and some sweet tart flavors come through as it opens but it is very clean in flavor.

M- The light mouthfeel has a soft fizz prick in the finish.

O- The crisp clean beer doesn’t have any off flavor and unfortunately has very little flavor at all. It went down fast but not enough character to reach for another.
