2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, pale golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite weak, with pale malts, pears and apples and some grass. The flavor is grassy and slightly citrusy, especially towards the metallic end. Some pale malts. Medium body, a bit unpleasant carbonation. Boring and uninteresting and I don’t like the metallic finish. 110319
