3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours slightly hazy light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly bready with herb/grass/citrus mild hop. Med body. Flavor is hoppier than the aroma suggest. Pale malt, quite clean, with a bready touch. For me it is quite bitter - likely noble considering the Saaz, but I can’t easily put a word to it. Grassy is probably close. It drinks very nicely. It’s really good.
