First had: bottle from Pinocchio's beer garden, Media, PA

Whew...this may have been an infected bottle or just past its prime, but something was not right about this beer. It looked fine enough: orange-brown color with a thin wispy head. Typical wheat profile on the nose, mixed with trash and rotten orange peels. Taste was stale and harsh, more rotten orange (clementine), skunk, funk, mulch, and old bitter hops. The bottle date indicated it was only a couple months old, and it doesn't seem like a beer could go that bad that fast. Maybe this one is just a "miss" for me. Average mouthfeel, but more or less undrinkable. Drain pour.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Gold color & crystal clear appearance. White froth, close & lasting crown. Herbs & intense coriander, light maltiness to the nose. Sweet caramel malt, lemon & spiced flavors. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Low bitterness & slight sweet finish. Flat. Unexpected disappointing from Clown Shoes.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a very pale yellow. Has a good foamy head, but otherwise reminds me of a mass-brew. Smells of straw and yeast.

Has a slightly sour, bubbly taste with only a hint of the clementine I was promised. It's certainly light, so it would be good on a hot day.

Overall, nothing special. Ok light beer + fruit but much more to say. I'd skip it.

Pours a very pale yellow. Has a good foamy head, but otherwise reminds me of a mass-brew. Smells of straw and yeast and spices, WTF? Not expected.

Has a slightly sour, bubbly taste with only a hint of the clementine I was promised. It's certainly light, so it would be good on a hot day.

I was expecting much more based on their good reviews. Overall, nothing special. Ok light beer + fruit but much more to say. I'd skip it.
