After a few years in the bottle, nose is subdued but sorachi character is still present, with tangerine and lemon notes. Crystal clea straw colour, attractive. Medium-light body, crisp finish.

Aroma - very muted nose - some hay, straw, sweet malt, and Saaz.
Appearance - somewhat hazy golden body, with a 2" white frothy head - that dissipates at a slow rate.
Taste - is a nice spiced tang. The malt is slightly dank and a little sweet - with some hay and spiced Saaz hops.
Palate - the body is light, texture is on the thin side, the carbonation is lively, the finish a little dank and spicy.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden orange color with apricot colored edges and a minimal thin head that quickly dissapears. Almost still until given an aggressive pour.
Slightly floral, grassy hop aroma that’s somewhat stale at this point. Hints of grass, straw and hay but there isn’t a very strong hop presence. Subtle spiciness along with pale malt, bread and biscuit. Underneath, there is a little bit of light fruit and pilsner malt.
Lighter bodied wih a bit more of a crisp, spicy hop bite than the aroma suggests. Still subtle with earthy grass and bitter, dry pine needle. There’s a decent amount of dryness followed by a pilsner malt backbone with a touch of light fruit sweetness. Some bread/yeast in there as well along with biscuit and a subtle cracker-y malt character.
