3.63/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

An opaque marmalade orange body, with some minor floaties and orange amber hues is made off the pour. Head is three fingers and creamy white, quickly settling to two fingers and a big bubbled pinhead puck.

Nose is biscuity malt. Mineral water and slightly spritzy. Yeast slight fruit like esters, and hits of mild herbal/floral hop angle.

Palate comes with a bit of a wet body, and borderline seltzery carbonation. Toasty and biscuity malt is hidden, but there manages to be some astringent like lime hop aftertaste on the finish. There's a little bit of alcohol warmth to this.

Overall, the body behind this beer and weak palate sort of leaves me a bit disappointed, but it's drinkable and it could be a lot worse to have out there for sure.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

Poured a thin head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is grainy with a touch of honey.
The taste is mild but pleasant. Mild bitterness with a watery to sweet finish.
The texture is crisp with a really nice fizz to it.
At first it comes across like a light lager but it has a bit more to it. The texture is awesome, but the taste comes up a little short.

Really nice refreshing "sparkling" ale. The sparkling element seems to be the higher level of carbonation, which isn't really what makes or breaks the beer overall. It's got a good taste, some citrus notes and is good on a hot summer day.

Poured into a pint glass

This beer had a typical EPA appearance. There was a nice head on it after a vigorous pour. The taste was buscuity and citrusy with a bit of a grassy smell.

This brew had carbonation similar to soda.

Overall, it was quite refreshing and would go great with a hot sunny day.
