Thanks to Jeff for tossing me one of these. Figured I'd give it a try - why not? I'll never be "above" anything. Poured from a can into a Lagunita's mason jar. That's got "classy" written all over it. The only thing that would be more perfect would be sitting in an old, rusty canoe out in some stinky ass pond in the middle of nowhere.

It pours kind of cloudy, like muddled orange juice, only with a bit more transparency at the edges which nearly turn to yellow when the light beams through them. The foamy, almost frothy, bone-white head lasts for a minute or two but leaves a bit of lacing as it recedes. The aroma is Orange Kool-Aid. Seriously. Orange Kool-Aid infused with just a little bit of faint grains. And when I say faint, I mean almost completely nonexistent. The smell is not bad at all, just extremely straightforward and boring. Like most Nicholas Cage movies.

It tastes.... like I would expect it to taste. Grainy backbone with more of that "borderline-artificial" orange flavor. It's kind of like an Orange spritzer, thanks to the heavy bouts of carbonation. There is just a little bit of "beer" flavor to this, as the watered down Kool-Aid pretty much masks everything else. Very light bodied with a ton of carbonation - tight, crispy mouth feel and a dry finish.

Eh. What did I expect? Not a lot. And because of that, I wasn't really let down. In fact, I enjoyed this one much more than Summer Shandy and I'm sure this would prove to be extremely quaffable on a hot summer day.
