3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Lager House, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear gold color with a small, frothy white head that leaves some lace in the glass. Not a whole lot of aroma, but what’s there is pleasant enough - grass, straw, lighter citrus fruits, florals, and pine. The flavor amps up a bit and carries more bitterness. Also crackers, straw, and a bit of soap. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter mouthfeel that lingers. I’d have liked for it to have a little more nose, but otherwise this is a nice APA and the hops come together well in the flavor.
