3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thin head on a hazy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is mild fruit: apricot and some grapefruit.
The taste has a solid moderate bitterness throughout with some balancing malt in the middle to end. It finishes with a little sweet note.
The texture is crisp with a good fizz.
It’s enjoyable and on the more bitter side.

Nice malty/floral aroma, with a cloudy amber color, very little head, smooth light flavor without a bitter hop aftertaste of some pale ales, however a little lighter than preferred. Definitely a summer afternoon beer.

Very drinkable but with enough interest to make you think about it a bit more. Very peppery.
