Bandit from Manor Hill Brewing. Purchased 10/11/20 for $ 4.43 (Including tax and discount) for 16 oz can ($ 0.277/oz) from State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD. Reviewed 5/1/21.
Bottom of can marked “FOUR OUTTA 4 9/28/2020”. On room temperature shelf at store and stored at home at 42 degrees. Served at 45 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter. Final temperature 51.2 degrees.
Appearance – 3.5.
First pour – Straw (SRM 3), hazy.
Body – Straw (SRM 3), murky. When held to direct light, same.
Head – Average (Maximum 3.5 cm, aggressive center pour), antique white, medium density, short retention, leaving a five to seven mm crown and a thin complete cap.
Lacing – Good. Tight bands of very tiny bubbles with short stalactites and connecting columns.
Aroma – 3.25 – Begins with weak tropical fruit, a little malt, and no yeast.
Flavor – 3 – Begins slightly bitter with a touch of apricot, no malt, no yeast. No alcohol (7.7 % ABV, as marked on container) found in either nose or taste. Gastric warming does not occur. No dimethylsulfide or diacetyl. Apricot grows stronger and bitterer.
Palate – 3 – Medium, watery, soft carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 3 Nasty. The licorice that @BBThunderbolt noted would have been a definite plus as would some diacetyl.

Thanks to Ozzylizard for this one, from a LIF during NBS BIF #12. 16oz can (dated 9/28/20) poured into 14oz teku. Poured a muddy dark orange color with about 1/3 inch of white head that had low retention and no lacing.

The aroma was that of a basic murkbomb; frooty hops, no malt or yeast aspects.

On the tongue, it started out similar, but had a sharp licorice taste on the finish that was really out of place. And, as I drank through the glass, that licorice became stronger.

The body was the typical light of the style, and had a medium finish.

Drinkability suffered due to that licorice, but was otherwise average for the style.

Overall, an average-ish version of the style, but for that damn licorice. YMMV.
