  • Taste: The taste follows the nose with lots of citrusy, herbal, spicy, grainy flavors .  There are notes of lime juice, lemon juice, light orange, mint, spicy ginger, and more subtle honey and cereal grain.
  • Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied and well-carbonated, the Bug Zapper is tart and exceptionally refreshing with a clean finish.

Overall pairing: The Bug Zapper from Avery Brewing is a punchy and tart, yet very refreshing brew... perfect for the zany rock and roll of the "Bad Channels" soundtrack!  'Nuff said!
