1.1/5 rDev -67%
Tasted like lemon dish soap in 2010. I had it on tap first thought I got a glass that was not rinsed well. Had it in a bottle recently after that, same disgusting taste.
I dared to take a sip this years batch and it still tastes like lemon dish soap!
Way to go Jim, keep putting out horrible beer!

12oz into SA Perfect Pint
Overpriced 6er at LCBO for summer promotion.
A- Clear rich banana/straw pour. Half finger head disappears in the bat of an eye, lacing is minimal.
S- Oh goodness where to begin? Lemon rind, grass, dirty socks, chemical cleaner and throat lozenges.
T- Please taste better than it smells. Please taste better than it smells... Nope grass, lemon pledge, faint medicinal. Tastes like a cheap air freshener would taste.
M- Thin watery feeling to it. Carbonation is there but not enough to save the feeling of this beer.
WOW this beer is a train wreck IMO. I had to buy the 6er (Ontario only sells 6, 12 and 24. Unless otherwise noted) and this thankfully was my last. I wanted to give it a chance. I wanted to like it. I haven't had a bad SA yet. But my god this was an abomination... I feel like I should scrub my mouth out with a dirty toilet brush to get the taste out...

This is the one you see in those cool commercials, with the special info on ingredients. Great Brewery, great commercial ... terrible beer... for me anyway!
I personaly do not like citrusy beers ... I love piney, bitter, sour, and extra hopped beers... but not citrus. My butt lips puckered the next day after drinking this! Not cool.

On-tap at Red Mesa Cantina
A - Pours a pale gold with a good head and lace.
S - It smells unpleasantly perfumed and chemical-y.
T - The flavor is not much better, the perfume is transformed into a bad spiciness that is quite is quite similar to Raid bug spray.
M - Limp.
D - There are a lot of bad beers in the style, but this one is really horrid.
