3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Citric aroma with a golden hazy appearance. It is the carbonation that gives this a light flavor and makes this very drinkable. The bitter hoppy flavor is subtle. I get also some faint malt and yeast notes in there somewhere. It is good but I wanted more somehow.
