This beer seems to have it all, with amazing can art depicting a great play on words with Superbowl (geddit?). We normally write out own descriptions but when the copy is this good, we'll just let the brewery get on with it:
"It’s not the size of the bird in the fight that matters, but the size of the fight in the bird. And this lil’ owl’s has got some serious fight! You could even say we went all Tom Brady on the competition to create a 0.2% IPA that actually tastes like a grown-up IPA and not like some pee wee pilsner wannabe.
Superb-owl is a gamechanger, friends. A low-alcohol ale that delivers a superhero punch without the dizzy aftermath. Or, in proper American footballer terminology, no concussion protocol required! And at just 85 calories a can, Superb-owl is as much for linebackers as it is for laidbackers who like to watch linebackers slam into buff projectiles (strange folk, these fans)."
Superb-Owl pours a fairly clear straw-yellow colour and retains a reasonable head. The aroma is soft and tropical and the taste is an initial fruitiness coming from the citra hops. The bitterness soon kicks in to balance it out and it has an excellent mouthfeel for a 0.2% beer. Similar to COAST IPA, this is a gorgeous beer.
