3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hazy gold - nose of earthy and floral hops, light malt sweetness, minerals, biscuit - fairly smooth and creamy in the mouth - the malt sweetness is a bit high in the flavor, and the alcohol is a little more present than I would like, but when those earthy, grassy, peppery, lightly woody hops kick in, I can almost forgive that - sadly, the sweetness persists, making the finish a little syrupy - make this a 5%abv beer and it will be freaking dope.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Rackhouse. Clear golden with a pleasantly hoppy nose of herbal/grassy hops, and little else. Taste was pretty hoppy and bitter, with the grassy and herbal hop notes comin in strong and sharp, not too resinous just bitter and assertive, with a quiet biscuity lagerness from the middle to the finish. Great big body, just no nuance.
