3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightly cloudy classic golden color with a one-finger, rich, light tan colored head. Pungent pine couched in some citrus on the nose. Texture is pretty unremarkable with some biting carbination appearing a moment after the pull into the mouth. Disappointing flavor given the nose. Adequate malt backbone, but the malt and hop flavors combine to yield a staleness one would not expect in a current vintage with this bouquet.

Unfortunately it is kind of average. Not a whole lot of zip to the nose, look, taste or palate. Not bad though...
