3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yest residue throughout the golden body, but a solid, lasting head. Mandarin hops, grassy and light fresh yeast. Also, unfortunately a bit cabbage. Still nice. Good amount of bitterness, lively pleasant body. Not dry in the aftertaste, bit clean even. Nice brew from a brewer full of great ideas and execution skills.
