A nicely hopped Ale with a twist of orange. A great beee flavorful warm weather Ale.

Pours a slightly amber golden yellow with minimal foam.

Fruity hop character with a touch of biscuity malt sweetness.

Fruity hop flavor emerges on the palate with a touch of caramel malt sweetness, but very underwhelming overall.

Light-bodied, low carbonation, crisp, easy drinking.

Overall, while this is certainly a beer that goes down with ease, that's just about all it provides. A lackluster hop and grain bill provide little more than drinkability. Very little flavor overall.

Clear amber-yellow brew; small head with OK retention.

The nose is dominated by an underlying diacetyl note. This does not bode well.

Unfortunately, flavor follows the nose. It's a zesty brew, with bright hops and a caramel malt base, but oh - the butter! The diacetyl note makes it hard to take and almost impossible to finish.

I can't imagine this is how the beer is supposed to taste. I've also never gotten a diacetyl note before from Funky Buddha brews. Either something went wrong, or their collab brewery is to blame. Either way, this was barely drinkable, and not particularly pleasant.

Pretty basic pale. Specialty Brewer for Tap 42. Not bad, but certainly nothing to go out of your way to try.
