18/20 Nice, light pale ale with an herbal, lemony kick. I taste a little orange peel bitter, too. I actually like the low acohol content. Nice and refreshing without knocking me down. Jere: 4.0 Appearance

15/20 Weird neon yellow color, but it tastes good. It's got that tropical zing. Kind of reminds me of the "natural" energy drink I was drinking yesterday. A little bit of a vitamin aftertaste and no head…

16/20 The mouthfeel reminds me more of an Orange Julius than a milkshake, but maybe the flavor profile is throwing me off. Very little nose. Very tart at the end. My brain is spinning too much from the "milkshake" term to properly arrange my thoughts... tasty beer though. Jere: 3.8 Appearance

15/20 We drink a lot of Mexican lager around here, I think it's interesting to contrast with a premium lager every once in a while. There's a helluva lot more flavor, but I also enjoy the cleanness of basic lagers. It's almost like the difference between tequila and vodka. I enjoy the bitterness of this to a point but it starts to add up. Biggest hoppy bouquet of any lager I've…

13/20 The color is darker than any IPA I've ever seen. A bit metallic, or maybe the sour zing is just really intense. Unique. Mark: 3.2 Appearance

17/20 Bright citrus, but subdued. Not in an underwhelming way, just in a delicate way. The lingering bitterness at the end is really nice, it's rare for that flavor to distract me from my next sip! Mark: 4.4 Appearance

14/20 The nose has a malty barley wine quality to it. There's a metallic component to the bitterness profile, not entirely unpleasant but unexpected. The other bitter flavors are really nice though. Mark: 4.0 Appearance

12/20 This is really interesting, but I think a Kolsch isn't the best vehicle for this intense sage flavor. I want a Kolsch to be light and the herb weighs it down a bit. Mark: 2.7 Appearance
