3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finely handbottled. Golden raisin, strawberry, caramel, honey, candied fruit peels in the aroma; rather syrupy in sweetness with a bit of cotton candy. Flavor is a lovely kind of sweet grassiness lending some greenness and youth to these sugary, malty tones. Cotton candy, vanilla, pastry crust, and basic doughnut flavor; full, sweet nuttiness of pistachio flowering in the mid palate. Texture is medium bodied and fairly watery; clean maltiness and plenty of powdered sugar. Wet graininess and caramel sweetness in an unimposing finish. Sprightly, pleasant springtime offering. Thanks Andrew!

This is a Spring drinking beer for sure. On draught at Circa (where else), crisp, flavorful, toast and toffee and caramel in a refreshing lager format. Nice.
