  • Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can of 08/05/20.

    Pours cloudy with a couple of inches of white foam. Wispy lacing. Above average retention that reminds me of light meringue as it recedes.

    Aroma is harsh lemon and cat piss to begin, joined quickly by over ripe fruits, reminding me of rotten fruit - apples laying on the orchard ground in October.

    Taste is sweet lemon and orange that lingers in the finish. It almost bites and is tart. Some bitterness builds, ebbing to the strong side.

    Light body that almost doesn't exist. The medium carbonation lifts it to that point. Dry. Not juicy.

    This is an unpleasant experience. If this was my first Energy City I would not have another. They swung on missed on this beer. Enjoy!
