3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub: This is the product, I was told, of the recipe of (a) homebrewer(s). This had a deep golden body with a big bubbly head. The aroma is full of citrus hop scents, predominantly yellow grapefruit and lemon zest, over a light malty sweetness. The flavor, too, is full of the citrus, balanced by sweet grainy malts. Tasty, but this is really crying out for more bittering hops.
