3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-29-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a big beautiful foamy white head. Big bubbles pop in the head causing it to fade slowly over time with it eventually fading over about a three minute time period to leave some streaks of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a biscuit and a toasted grainy malt smell. Mixed with these aromas are a bit of herbal smells and some floral notes.
Taste – The taste is much as would have been anticipated from the nose. The taste starts out with a toasted grain taste that is mixed with a little bit of a biscuit taste as well as some sweeter flavors of a honey and citrus flavor. Upfront there is also a bit of a grapefruit hop bringing just a small bite of bitter. The sweeter flavors dwindle as the taste moves on, with some floral and herbal hop flavors developing more toward the end. At the completion of the taste the combination of flavors leaves a rather pleasant, crisp, and moderately bitter taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thinner side with a carbonation that is average to slightly above average. The feel of the beer is very appropriate for the style and matches well the crisp finish and moderate hop flavors of the brew.
Overall – The rather crisp and refreshing brew that is fantastic for a nice warm day. A very tasty summer day brew.
