3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25th January 2013
At the brewpub. Noted as new batch US hops on the pumpclip and at 4.5%, Light hazy amber beer, small off white head. Palate is softish with moderate fine carbonation. Surprisingly sweet start (or maybe itís in contrast to the aggressive American Light). Nice red berry fruits - slightly candy. Keeps going through the mid where more traditional marmalade bitterness kicks in. Finishes smooth and sweet. Very drinkable.
