Draught @ the brewpub. Aroma is rather nice and fruity with pineapple juice and tropical fruits. Flavour has tropical fruits, pineapple juice and menthol. Finishes with mild harsh herbal bitterness. No signs of lager here - perhaps slight grainy tones. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap at black back, waterbury. unclear bright golden pour with a creamy and ffrothy whtie head offering excellent retention and strong lacing. bright citrus, whole cones, herbal-grassy nobleness, gentle pine, weed, very lightly toasted maltiness - specialty, lagering fruitiness surprisingly making its way through the massive fragrant hop bill - peaches, apricots, clementines. average carbonation, light body - oily, surprisingly dry and crisp citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. balanced and very tasty. my first non-BA or perhaps hoppy lower abv brew from the bruery - for the third time, i’m surprised if not flabbergasted. dangerous drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a big rocky white head that towers over the top of the glass without leaking or dripping. Huge fresh pine and garlic nose, with heavy wet grass and bright piercing herbal notes showing. Very flashy and attention getting nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and soft lemon on the mid palate. Hops are less prevalent on the tongue than the nose, but the grassy and herbal notes show well. Pleasant herbal finish. Really good stuff.
