05/28/14 On tap. Sorry Bronx guys, but the word 'subtle' used in your description is misappropriated. The citrus may be subtle, but whatever lends the piney notes here might have had a lullaby as an intent but left a nightmare of "Mommy Dearest" proportions. (Well not quite, but I was looking to impress on the 0-100 discrepancy). Just as we all hope that the proverbial "long cold winter" yield to more a amicable climate, so I did wish for the harsh elements in this pint give way to something more...more...actually less 'distinctive'. Less can often be more.

On tap at the Strand. Served in a mason jar so hard to judge the appearance.

I can pretty much sum this beer up the same for each category which is to say nothing was distinctive. No aroma, taste was of a faint ale with no discernible character. Mouthfeel ok.

It's a summer ale so I reckon they went for something lightish but c'mon give me some citrus or something.

A: cloudy; breass colored; 1 finger pillowy white head that receded quickly to a ring around the edge of the glass;

S: lemon and light malts;

T: lemon rind from start to finish; minimal bitterness;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp;

O: one note - lemon rind; I like bitterness in my beer, but the bitterness in this wasn't pleasing;

From 09/12/13 notes. Had this on tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC.

a - Pours a murky yellow-orange color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of lemons, citrus hops, floral notes, earthy notes, spice, yeast, grains, wheat, and light fruits. Some decent strong lemon and citrus to it, pretty nice.

t - Tastes of wheat, lemon, sour bread, grains, citrus, and earthy notes. Too much lemon, a step down from the nose for me.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Little bitter in the mouthfeel.

o - Overall the nose was promising, but the taste was just too much lemon and one dimensional for me. Wouldn't really seek this one out or have it again.
