Indiana

3.49/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy golden, with average carbonation and very light lacing. Nothing memorable here.

Aroma is spicy and peppery with a touch of citrus. Pleasant enough, and already seems refreshing.

Taste is more of the spice up front, with a mild touch of citrus and fruit. Cold Snap is a lively, easy-to-drink session brew, and an enjoyable one at that. No problems here.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Hazy light peach. Two finger head settles to a film that never leaves. Nice lacing.

S - Tangerine and coriander. Plum comes through after sitting a few minutes.

T - Malts, citrus, and coriander blend blissfully. Finishes with light hops.

M - Medium

O - Delicious and very refreshing! If you find one, grab it. Excellent session brew. Cheers!

2.84/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Cloudy haze of a light golden hue, some orange tinge

Smell: Nice, crisp, citrusy aroma. quite nice

Taste: At first extremely refreshing, hints of citrus, fruity. Then it seems a bit stale and sour like oranje juice thats about to spoil. Finally a very unpleasant musty alcoholic taste is left in my mouth. That is all I can think about after I take a sip

Mouthfeel: inadequate, a bit too watery

Overall: Sub par, borderline poor. Won't be drinking this brew ever again.

Would recommend to a woman or someone who doesn't enjoy darker beers.
