3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Pours a pale hazy gold with a nice white head of foam. The aroma is more of a fruity hop profile that remains subdued. Taste is a touch bitter on the front end, but moves more to a seester middle and a slightly bready finish. Quite nice overall. Session beer for sure.
