3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Triangle, Paris, 4/25/15
Mildly hazed, very soft blonde beer with a foamy, messily-retained white head.
Grass, light floral notes and a touch of grapefruit in the nose show very delicate hopping, with minimal malt aromatics. Clean yeast profile shows no flaws/minimal esters.
Good body though it isn’t sweet. The carbonation and light biscuit-like character matches the flavorful, yet not heavily bitter hoppiness, imparting tons of grassiness and moderate citrus, with a very tight carbonation and crisp finish. Really nice beer, though could use a touch more malt substance. It’s very dry and a bit husky at times on account of the high attenuation. Had a few of these and a few Neck Oils and was reallly in to this quite a bit more.
