3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer. Pours light amber gold with a creamy white head. Light malty aroma with fruity/grassy hop. Med minus body. Flavor is quite mild. Starts with some grassy hop then light roasty malt pops up. Finish is grassy/fruity dry. Bitter enough to scare people 30 years ago?
After reading a book for 15 minutes while not paying attention to what I was drinking, my brain stood up and said "good stuff". So perhaps it’s a bit subtle for those of us used to hop bombs. But it is good stuff. Rating up a bit.
