3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Craft Beer Co, London. Hazy golden pour, crisp carbonation and a firm head capping it off. Dry and floral nose initially, with a touch of malt sweetness. Prickly mouthfeel tends to enhance the dry and perky citrus flavors, though there’s certainly more than a touch of yeast and breadiness in there as well. Decent but pretty forgettable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 fl oz bottle courtesy of bvc. The pour is clear golden with a noisy 2 inch egg white head. The aroma is floral hops, herbal yeast, and a pleasant cracker malt. Fresh nose. The taste is big herbal character up front, floral hops next, then some clove yeast notes. A bit of citrus present as well. The palate is light to medium bodied, effervescent active carbonation, paired with a floral dry finish. Tasty beer, very much in my wheelhouse, thanks for sending it my way Brandon.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a creamy off-white head and a helluva lot of ugly sediment in there. The aroma picked up lemon, grassy, and fruity notes over soft biscuit and bready malt.. a touch warm on the back.. quite nice. The flavor found bready and fruity notes at the core, with peppery and fruity yeast laced throughout.. spicy lemon kicked in toward the end.. tangy yeast and hoppage over soft malt on the finish. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. good feel to it.. solid brew.
