3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale golden with medium-thin white head. The nose is bright and pleasant as it unveils its pineapple and citrus notes, but its initial intensity seems to slacken a bit over time. The flavor begins with gentle zest over pale malts, followed by bright, refreshing hops which provide balance through gentle bitterness, which also carries the dry finish fairly elegantly. The texture is gentle and spritzy. A neat and wholesome beer.
