Can pours out a clear, bright orange colored beer with a thin seam of bubbles. Lots of lacing. Aroma is a good hit of mango. Definitely artificial. Smells of clementines, too. Flavor is sweet mango and some artificial creamsicle. Not sure what is from the hops and what is from the flavoring/fruits. Light bodied with easy bitterness. Not very much into this one. I prefer the original Even Keel.

Pours an amber color. Slight candied/mango smell. Tastes like an adjunct lager with a bit of mango juice mixed in. Not a bad beer, but not something I would necessarily buy again.

12 oz Can Poured into small glass, forgot to look at the date on the can, but I am assuming this is fresh.

A — Pours a clear and clean light yellowy orange hue into the glass, there is an off white colored head that forms and leaves behind some wisps of foamy lacing behind it.

S — Smell is nice and pungent initially, though not overdone, there are notes of stonefruit and tropical overtones, fairly light and not overly mango focused though. There is a grainy and light sweetness here, some cereal graininess and a overly sweet fruit component, a bit unnatural.

T — Taste is crisp and straightforward initially with grainy notes of cereal and malt. A real resounding fruity pebble note is present and somewhat overpowers whatever else was going on. A very grainy and artificially sweet fruity pebble note dominates the palate.

M — Absurdly bitter and astringent, a huge drying finish, acrid, bitter, borderline unpleasant.

O — A bit of a letdown, this is a supremely bitter and artificially fruity pebble sweet beer, a miss for me. YMMV.

Very light in color and body. Has a very slight hint of mango smell, and similarly faint mango flavor. This beer is a slightly more interesting version of a decent session IPA.
