16oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy golden-orange. Head settles into a thin slip. Thin ring of lacing.

S: Pith and pulpy orange. Green grass. Musty basement. Bread and grain.

T: Juicy hops burst with flavors of mandarin orange, peach, star fruit, etc. Pithy and leafy too. Spicy. Maybe even a tad soapy. Firm but gentle bitterness. Faint wet dog sort of taste. Lightly toasted grain and bread. Hop oils and pithy orange on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Soft, creamy, and airy. Bite of carbonation cuts through. Lightly gripping hop astringency.

O: There's a dank basement/wet dog sort of quality that I find a little distracting. It is more apparent in aroma, while the hops cover it up a little in taste. Not sure if this is something stemming from a hop addition or if they have mold issues and need to CIP the water. At any rate, this would be an excellent beer if not for this distraction. It's very juicy and crushable with a lot of exotic hop flavor. Just what people want these days.

Definitely floral hints to this. Strange bite on the back end, reminiscent of Heady Topper. I liked it but not one I could drink all the time.

From a 12oz can, dated 05/03/17. Served in an imperial pint pub glass.

Pours a thoroughly hazed golden-straw-yellow with a couple of fingers of soft ivory head. Retention is just OK but leaves an honest collar of foam and some nice sticky lacing.

Smells of clean wheaty maltiness, orange peels and a hint of mint.

Tastes of crackery, spicy wheat and orange juice. Some grapefruit peel, grassy herb and bhang water. Ends with a quick, clean rosemary and pine resin bitter finish.

Feel is clean and crisp, slightly less than medium bodied and brightly carbonated. Very easy drinking.

Overall, a nice little beer from BBC that feels bigger than it's stated abv of 5.8%, not in terms of booziness (none detectable) but in its solid, substantial body. This would be an eminently suitable lawn mower beer.
