I found this beer to very watery and for the most part, tasteless. The body is very thin and spices and hops hardly make a showing.

Really, it looks ok and smells ok. Taste was terrible. Ended up dumping it. Just this weird tingy zip on the tongue.

Pale yellow in appearance
Smelled like a mop bucket
Tasted like a mop bucket
Mouth feel was thin with little lacing on the glass
Overall impression was that this is not for me at all
This is not my style of beer but then again this is not my style of brewery...12 bucks for a 6 pack of local brew says it all. This beer needs to stay on that little island

Pine-Sol color... er, i mean, somewhat dark lemonadish in color with a loose and fluffy head that was rather difficult to generate. Oranges dominate the aroma, followed by lemons and some pepper, plus some floor polish-- the lemon kind, of course. Nice stream of bubbles in the glass, too. A real battle in the taste between the oranges and the lemons. The oranges come out on top, but not in a good way. Very little evidence of yeast or any real beer flavor: this is mostly a citrus cooler. And the beer is surprisingly flat given the bubbles. It tastes more like an orange rickey than beer-- just add ice, a swimming pool, a cheap novel and a humid afternoon. Blahblah. Pass.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a small head that dissipates quickly to small bits of foam on the top.

S: I get the smallest hint of citrus and wheat, but mostly its smells quite bad. It sort of smells like a dirty sock. It does not make me want to take a sip whatsoever.

T: Better than I though based on the smell. A bit of the citrus comes through, but overall there just isn't much. I am just glad the sock smell is not prevalent on the flavor profile.

M/D: Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Just not good. Not going to finish this one, and don't normally pour beers out. I doubt it is too old since I got it in MA, but its possible.

Slightly hazy straw/copper in color. Nice thick foamy white head.

Nose is heavy on spices. Cloves. Some floral notes. Interesting but odd.

Taste is off-putting. Lightly spiced water. Almost like an astringent, watered-down tea flavored with pear and nutmeg. No semblance of hops or malt.

Mouthfeel is watery.

Just not a good beer at all.

Wow what a strange one this is. Very herbal almost overpowering. Nothing like I have ever tasted in a beer and I have had 100's. Almost like a crazy herbal, ginger mix that you just cannot get past. If you want something very strange maybe, but i just cant see this one.
