Quick rating at event, so may adjust in future. Aroma: fresh and hoppy; Appearance: in a cup, so couldn’t tell color; fluffy white head; Taste: also fresh and hoppy, but not overwhelming; didn’t seem very complex but it was refreshing; Palate: medium body with long, bitter finish; Overall: would definitely buy again.
