3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden pour with a tight creamy white head. The nose is fairly lean with a lightly toasted nose. Bright, fresh maltiness with a distinctly minerally/herbal hoppiness toward the finish. Really bright, fresh and clean. Easily quaffable quality. Easy to drink, well-balanced and quite tasty. There is a kiss of noble hoppiness on the finish that just comes across as a bit of light spiciness.
