2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can at World of Beer, Savannah. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent.
A rough, raw, overly bitter example with nothing much to offer in the nose other than the usual resin-grapefruit hop odor common to most American pale ales. Some diacetyl doesn’t help matters either. This one required a surreptitious visit to the restroom to dump it in the sink so I could move on to something else.

Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - Atlanta Hwy. - 12 oz can. Medium copper pour, slightly hazy, soft white head. Decent floral aroma with some spruce accents. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some muted citrus undertones, light caramel, a bit of nuttiness and just a hint of mint. Mouthfeel is full and nicely textured. Good session material.
