3.4/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

An attractive orange color. Looks like a good beer: slightly hazy, not too carbonated, and a fine head which lasts through the drinking. Some lacing. But the taste is timid, citrusy and a little oily. Finally, a drinkable beer and one I might drink again if available in Andoo's Big Beer collection. Drunk from a mason jar.

*I've tried this beer again, and would change the review slightly. I must've gotten an old bottle, but the newest attempt was much better: an exciting beer. And the newest bottle cost me only 6 bucks, and was fresher, livelier, lovelier.

2.66/5  rDev -26.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Undated bomber at 45 degrees into goblet; twist off cap!
Extremely faint aroma of fruity hops
Head initially < 1 cm, off white, frothy; rapidly diminishing to a partial layer approximately 1.5 mm thick
No lacing
Body is medium orange, hazy: a couple of large lumps fell into the glass when poured
Flavor begins slightly bitter with no discernable taste. This ends with a slight astringency. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation.

This is not a good beer. It is contract-brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA, possibly at The Lion. There is virtually no hoppiness nor any other flavor. The appearance and the aroma are both sub-par; only the palate is as expected. IMHO, pass this one by.
