3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a slightly cloudy and hazy gold body with a small wispy white head. The nose is decent, citrusy and fairly bright with some caramel malt. The flavor is fairly bright as well with a nice fresh tasting citrusy hoppiness. Mild to moderate caramel malt sweetness on the finish. Light to medium bodied with a lingering bitter finish. OK, probably the best of the bunch as far as what was on tap that day.
