2/5 rDev -43%
Pine-Sol color... er, i mean, somewhat dark lemonadish in color with a loose and fluffy head that was rather difficult to generate. Oranges dominate the aroma, followed by lemons and some pepper, plus some floor polish-- the lemon kind, of course. Nice stream of bubbles in the glass, too. A real battle in the taste between the oranges and the lemons. The oranges come out on top, but not in a good way. Very little evidence of yeast or any real beer flavor: this is mostly a citrus cooler. And the beer is surprisingly flat given the bubbles. It tastes more like an orange rickey than beer-- just add ice, a swimming pool, a cheap novel and a humid afternoon. Blahblah. Pass.

Pale yellow in appearance
Smelled like a mop bucket
Tasted like a mop bucket
Mouth feel was thin with little lacing on the glass
Overall impression was that this is not for me at all
This is not my style of beer but then again this is not my style of brewery...12 bucks for a 6 pack of local brew says it all. This beer needs to stay on that little island

Slightly hazy straw/copper in color. Nice thick foamy white head.
Nose is heavy on spices. Cloves. Some floral notes. Interesting but odd.
Taste is off-putting. Lightly spiced water. Almost like an astringent, watered-down tea flavored with pear and nutmeg. No semblance of hops or malt.
Mouthfeel is watery.
Just not a good beer at all.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a small head that dissipates quickly to small bits of foam on the top.
S: I get the smallest hint of citrus and wheat, but mostly its smells quite bad. It sort of smells like a dirty sock. It does not make me want to take a sip whatsoever.
T: Better than I though based on the smell. A bit of the citrus comes through, but overall there just isn't much. I am just glad the sock smell is not prevalent on the flavor profile.
M/D: Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Just not good. Not going to finish this one, and don't normally pour beers out. I doubt it is too old since I got it in MA, but its possible.

A- Hazy pale straw-gold body with a fizzy white head. Retention is pretty low from a cap that builds to about two fingers in size. No lace from a tiny ring.
S- Lemon/citrus peel, clove, general yeast spice and some light caramel malt. Not much going on.
T- Very thin/watered down feeling flavor that is very lemon and clove forward, which ends up giving it a citrus soda feel. There is some coriander, yeast spice, bread and light malt but none of it really offsets the dominant citrus soda feel.
MF- Light watered down body with high carbonation, you could easily mistake this for tonic water or soda.
Lemon lime soda beer, it would actually make a very nice soda, but that is the whole problem here. Too thin for any style with a flavor that is out of check. Now that I think of it, it tastes a lot like Baja Blast, an exclusive soda to Taco Bell.

this beer pours a hazy gold color with a 1 finger white foam head this beer has about as much carbonation as a sprite it is way over the top.
the smell is of spices i cant place them nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander maybe even ginger
the taste is everything described above in the smell, but the aftertaste is almost like a copper penny mixed with dove soap.
the mouthfeel is a little too much of a bite for me due to the high carbonation kinda is destructive to the flavor and enjoyment of the beer
over all not that impressed
