3.19/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Poured bottle into glass. 4.2% abv. 10/5/14 freshness date.
Appearance- Bright orange in color and crystal clear clarity. White foamy two-finger head that dissipates fairly quick.
Smell- Grainy malts persist with a touch of cooked vegetable aroma. Maybe a very slight hint of rasberries in the nose but not much.
Taste- A dry typical corn lager taste. Some tartness associated with fruit but this is lacking. Good amounts of wheat malt with some caramel malt mixed in as well with a honey like finish.
Mouthfeel- Thin, as a lager should be. A bit too watery. Well carbonated.
Overall- This is a fairly decent lager, however it does not live up to its name. There should be more fruit flavor and a bit more sweetness. The label goes as far as to say you may even see some fruit pulp...I'm not buying that. Mildly refreshing. Could use improvement.
