Got lucky and picked this up when I had the chance. Available in Alabama only. A collaboration brew between Cigar City, Folklore, and Moola.

Looks nice on the pour. Strong grassy nose with citrus really showing well. Flavor is excellent. Superb citrus tones with a nice fruity edge. Kind of a sweet thing going on as well. Overall, this is an extremely drinkable brew that I am almost done with drinking and it's only been a few minutes. Really great production.

A - Pours a golden hue with subtle hints of orange. It has a frothy two finger eggshell white head. Great retention/lacing.

S - Really a light citrus note on the nose. There's a slight hay/grassy element, but it's not easy to get.

T - Juicy, wet, orange citrus. Notes of pineapple/mango as well. A little hay on the backend with a light hop finish.

M - Light bodied, medium carbonation and has a wet finish.

O - So simple and unassuming, but oh so good.

Just wanted to clarify a few points. This beer is a collaboration of CCB/Folklore and Moola to celebrate the legalization of homebrewing in AL. We are the Moola component which is the local homebrew club in SE. AL, and if you read the story on the can, you will understand how this beer came to be. Also, it is our recipe for a Pre-Prohibition lager (not an APA) that was brewed as an ale and hopped up by the 2 pros with an unusual blend of New Zealand hops. We did a 3 city release tour in late October and the beer was very well received. Right now we are trying to convince CCB to brew more, and do it once a year to be released in May when the law changed.

Also, even though we helped to brew it, it is the most unusually hopped lighter beers we have ever had and we really love it.

Cheers,
Sharon
