3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught, pours clear golden into the glass, with a decent pillowy fluff, diminishing but leaving generous lace. Bready nose, with some earthen hops. Slight lemony citrus passes a decent bitter upfront. Some metallic notes integrate nicely, and the finish is a clean, lingering bitter. Mouthfeel is light, with decent carbonation. Good brew for summer. Not much more to say... decently put together, clean and easy drinking.

Courtesy of markwise. Pours copper with gold edges and thin off white head. The aroma is sweet, malty, bread, a touch of butter and some hints of tangelo. The taste is a bit hoppier than the nose with a pulse of spice and some pine hops that quickly mix with grainy malts and bread. It finishes with fading malts and a persistent modest level of hops.
