3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Little Italy location. It pours a pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nice and bready with very little lemongrass-like grassy hops. The flavor is just ok. Lemongrass is prevalent, but it’s a bit full bodied and on the sweet side. A little floral. Hints of honey and pale maltiness with some green apple, and honestly, not enough hop character which surprised me from this brewery. Just ok overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[ Keg ][ 16oz ][ O’Hurley’s Leucadia ][ $1.50 ][ Conical Pint ][ 4.24.15 ]
>> Dead carbonation from probably low CO2 on the keg, clear straw color, medium white foam, spotty lace. Nose is fresh lime, lemon juice, white bread, white corn. Taste is crisp, well balanced, great body to balance with thicker honey biscuit, grassy, sharp hop bite to finish. Really good. Would like this more mainstream for Ballast Point. Would just replace their "Pale Ale", which is a "Kolsch" with this one for best craft canned portfolio ever.
