3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle - pours a hazy yellow - not sure if it’s unfiltered or perhaps just chill haze, but this looks quite beautiful. Decent one finger white cap that diminishes to a surface film and doesn’t leave much in the way of lace. Surprisingly fresh and lively grassy/lemony/peppery hop aroma, with a bit of sweetness from the malt underneath. Lovely. The flavour doesn’t quite live up to the appearance and the aroma, but is good nonetheless. Good mix of the lemony hops and the sweet malt, mild. Medium carbonation. Not much in the way of finish, though it does leave a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very good beer and a nice surprise. I would buy again, especially in warmer weather.
