A-Pours a cloudy orange color. Not an intense head. Mellow layer of white foam. Head leaves speckle lacing. Translucent.
S-Nice semi-funky yeast. Ripe fruitiness. Pale fruits. Sweet nose but the yeast really makes it delectable. Lightly woody. Smells dry. Alcohol is muted well.
T-Sweet and fruity. A very long, pronounced grassy hop flavor kicks in on the back end and lasts for an extended period of time. Not funky, but the yeast does add to the flavor. Alcohol is also muted well again. Bunch of flavors going on here. Enjoyable.
M-Medium bodied. Carbonation is softer than anticipated. I would maybe have liked a bit more bubble. Semi-slick. Dry.
O/D-I only bought one can. Seeing as a 4-pack is $13, one is enough as this is overpriced. But, I love NEBCO. This one is pretty good. Definitely a step or two below Gandhi Bot and Imperial Stout Trooper, but this is damn tasty in its own regard.

Pours reddish-orange, providing for a nice contrast to this grey day. White froth diminishes quickly.
Lemon, orange, orange peel, grain, yeast and taffy to the nose.
Tastes of more light, sour fruits, phenols, grain, sourdough, spice and sugar. Has a slightly metallic aftertaste.
Lighter side of medium in body. Smooth with a creamy middle.
Serving type: bottle
