Poured half finger of head on a clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is an interesting mix of orange, grapefruit and grain. It's borderline unpleasant...
The taste is metallic, pine and dry grain. Not great balance or mix.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's worth trying, but I did not enjoy it.

Pours to a huge sudsy detergent-like head that reduces to 3/8" and patchy lacing. Color is deep golden. Aroma is malty honey sweetness and grassy, herbal hops. Flavor is light pilsner and biscuit malt notes and sweet white wine and grassy/citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is light and "smooth". Overall a tasty lager with good hop flavors.

I can't improve on McStagger's review. It is an interesting clash of styles and flavors. I'd say it's quite drinkable, though, and an interesting kind of light beer that is well worth a try. Sharp and pleasantly carbonated. A picnic beer with a big dose of hops. Fruity and limey aroma.

Handsome clear amber in the glass with a modest foam. What I call the browned biscuit taste is quite intense. Lime and a touch of lemon. Woody and quite bitter at the finish. From the 12 oz can purchased at Bottlecraft in San Diego.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, grain, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid dry hopped flavor that makes this one easy to drink.

Serving type: can.
