I picked up this single 12oz brown bottle at the Trader Joe's store in Glen Ellyn, IL for $1.50. They let you buy 1 bottle at a time there instead of buying the whole 6 pack, so I like trying new beers from there for that reason. The beer had a best before date of 5/19/13 on it, so it's plenty fresh.
The beer poured a clear copper color with a 1-finger white head that lasted just under a minute and left only a few patches of lacing.
Not a strong smell, but what there is consists of mildly sweet caramel malt, a bit of lemon, and some grassy hops.
Nice balance here between sweet caramel and bitter hops. Neither one is overpowering. The hops give off a slight lemony flavor along with some grapefruit bitterness. The caramel and oale malts are mild, so nothing really stands out here.
Light to medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
Although there's nothing special about this one, there's nothing wrong with it either. It's a very enjoyable, easy to drink APA.
