A - Looked good
S - Smelled good
T - Very bitter aftertaste.
M - Not bad, not good.
D - Tried this because it's brewed nearby. Drank a 2nd one to make sure I wasn't mistasting. Gave the other 4 left of my 6-pack away. Almost afraid to try another Natty Greene variety because of this one. Hopefully I'll find some singles somewhere to try.

Appearance: 1” fluffy white head, cloudy golden color with significant carbonation. Large amount of lacing as well.
Aroma: Citrus dominates – tangerine and orange. Some biscuit malt as well and a bit of yeasty bread.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and somewhat sticky, noticeable carbonation in the swallow with a dry finish.
Flavor: toasted bread, a bit of raisin, tangerine. Flavor is more balanced than the aroma.
Overall: I found this brew enjoyable and drinkable. A nice session ale.

Thanks to Rusel_G for the bottle.
Appearance: Hazed orangey gold. Head is white, super fluffy, with a dense creamy, bubbly head. Solid retention with some spots of lacing.
Smell: Leafy and grassy. Some herbal and citrus. Malts are lightly sweet, pushing some biscuit and caramel malt. Slightly toasted. Slightly earthy. Very mild. Pale malts. Some grapefruit mixed in there.
Taste: Bready and slightly toasted. Hops hit a rather wide spectrum with some earthy, citrus, and even floral notes. Slight grapefruit and caramel malt sweetness. Undercooked bread and a slight lingering bitterness. A bit of hop spiciness. Leafy and grassy at times. Nice clean fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean with a medium body and slightly above average carbonation.
Overall: Hey, I can drink this!
It's a straight up, no frills APA. Nothing to write home about, but drinkable overall.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Typical dark straw color with a stark white head. The head has some decent stiffness and thickness to it that leaves lots of lacing. Retention is nice as well as the head stays about 1/4" all the way through.
Decent smell. Pretty good balance of citrus hops and caramel malts with a touch of fruitines as well. A bit stale smelling, possibly oxidation. Some sweetness in the aroma too.
Okay taste. Decent bitterness but there is a lot of chalk in the taste and mouthfeel. Gives a very acrid feel and taste to the beer which I find unappealing. Not much hop flavor either. The aspirin-like acridity is hard to get by in this one.
Average at best. Its always good to support the local beer scene but this one just didnt do it for me. As one of Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriends says, in her southern accent, "Its just too much fluff".

Poured into a pub pint. A pretty burnished copper body with a thick head that dissipated rapidly. Nose was relatively nondescript - to the extent that I could detect, vaguely hoppy. On the palate, modestly surpassed the relatively characterless nose: somewhat hoppy, a touch of malty, somewhat caramelly sweetness, a decently full mouthfell, and I'd say an average quaff that'll quench a thirst on a hot day but nothing to mention to beer-loving friends as something particularly worthy of their note.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, golden-copper coloring with no real head to speak of. Aromas of buttered biscuits, lemon sweet, cut grass, and subtle pepper notes. Subtle nose overall. Flavors are tart and tangy forward, with a blast of lemon first, followed by an almost astringent mouthfeel, grass and bitter hops backbone, and some errant ethyl notes. This seems like a bit of a mess on the palate. Light bodied that turns to sharp and astringent about mid-drink. The aftertaste has a solid roasted backbone to a very sweet, tart linger on a dry finish. I'm kind of wondering if this was a bad batch...I'm going to have to try it another time and possibly re-assess.
