3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ ACAT. Pours cloudy golden yellow with small white head. This was one of the best/most powerful noses of all the beers that day. Nose was just bursting with citrus, tropical and a bit earthy. Taste was not a strong as the nose, but still nice citrus, some tropical. However, there was some noticeable residual yeast that I could taste. Not offputting entirely, but not expected. Still very nice and would like to try the non-cask version.

Very hoppy aroma is fruity, floral and herbal. Moderately bitter. Relatively full body for style with medium carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Heavy hazed, yellow-orange body with a near white sea foam-like spray up top.
Smell: Very welcoming, inviting fresh orange blossom aroma atop a base tone of sun-dried grass and notes of pale malted grains.
Taste: Lightly bready pale malts imparting a low, light caramel sweetness. Lemony, orangy citrus with a kick of florals. Medium-plus bitterness. Firmly grassy with a bit of earthiness. Dry, hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Please enjoy. I did. I’m told Westmeister would like to try the non-cask version.

Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale fest. Pours a cloudy pale gold with an amber hue and a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong citrus note that is slightly sweet and has a backing grassy note. Flavor has more pine that mellows to more of a grapefruit note with a bit of grassy hops.
