3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a clear amber with a loose and tall off white head; very little lace. The aroma is slightly floral and a touch fruity. The flavor is rather long lived that starts out malty sweet and finishes hoppy dry with a touch of sour in the middle - not sure I like the progression. The body is quite light. Overall, this is OK, but I will not go out of my way to seek it out.
