A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of grapefruit, orange peels. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, orange peels, mild tea notes, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a beer worth trying.

On tap at 2 Bros. Pours a hazy, dirty looking yellow color with 2 inches of frothy head. Some lacing. The aroma is green tea, lemon, grapefruit and orange. Maybe some floral hops as well. The taste is more of the citrus fruits. Grapefruit and lemon mostly with some herbal/floral hops and green tea. Grapefruit and lemon peel finish. Lots of carbonation with a dry mouthfeel. Very little alcohol warmth. Some light bitterness.Great blend of flavors.

Very pale and clear. This beer smells great - hoppy, lemony, grassy, with an herbal quality I'm assuming comes from the tea. The taste is crisp and refreshing - the lager yeast is not prominent but you can tell it's a lager. Really interesting and tasty. yb

Poured into a lager glass, the appearance was a semi-pale yellow color with a two finger white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Sliding lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of the green tea with the melon up front, some cracker malts play gently in the background. Some warming helped the citrusy to piney hops come out pretty nice for a better balance.
The flavor leaned a bit more hoppy having some bitterness coincide fairly nice with the green tea sweetness and melon. Quickly sliding melon to green tea aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Definitely has the green tea in the finish which really helped smooth it out, damn nice and mobile.
Overall, I had to let it warm a bit to let the aroma match the flavor because initially, it really wasn't the same and I thought there was something wrong, but this beer does it's good favor and is well worthy of having again.

Can from Kelly and Paul, thanks.
Hazy straw color with a good sized bubbly white head that persists. Citrus earthy pine with a crackery maltiness and a bit of a tannic tea bite. Pretty good beer.
