The appearance had a hazy orange to light ruddy yellowish brown color. There’s a light glossy white foamy lacing trying to stick but sliding for the most part. The smell had a slight pine to citrus to grassiness trying to have a delicate grapefruit but really stays towards the pine. The taste was bittersweet pine/sweet citrus with a misleading spice that I’m unsure where it came from because I didn’t get any of that in the smell. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but not as sharp as expected for the style. This one comes across smoother than expected. Overall, decent for the style and to me.

On draft from the pub.

Pours a golden hue that is cloudy. Carbonation present. A little head.

Can't observe much smell.

Taste is of hops with malt finishes.

The finish is quite abrupt and bitey. Clears palette quickly and I think it could use more body. Sippable but not much to write home about.

I think this is two in a row bad singles from Saveon. A bit disconcerting. This one poured with large sediment particles. I can't imagine that it was supposed to be like that. The aroma is just slightly skunky but otherwise a nice mix of hoppy and malty.

The taste is also a fairly nice balance of bitter hops and a little bit of malt. There is a little off (infected) taste, but not pronounced. The aftertaste is bitter and also slightly funky.

I think this is a better effort than other Maumee's I've tried (and I have another to try later), but I also think that this was a bad bottle that I was sold on Thursday. That's two bad bottles in the same day. I don't like being a curmudgeon, but I will need to talk to the retailer.
