In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


South County Sound Machine

Aroma: “Creamy orange and lemon notes with a slight grassy character along with pine, mint, and herbal. Orange character reminds me of freshly squeezed orange juice.”

Flavor: “Rich, creamy mouthfeel from the lactose. Rich and fruity, like freshly squeezed OJ, as on the aroma, with low-moderate bitterness that lingers softly on the palate. Finish is lightly bitter and slightly sweet.”

Overall: “Nice beer. Great balance of the hops flavor, the lactose, the clean malt bill, and the water chemistry to make it all come together. Great hops aromas and flavors. Really nice tropical fruit complexity throughout.”
