Atlanta, Ga, - Total Wine & More - Brookhaven - 12 oz can. Sparkling, medium golden pour, soft,off-white head, light lacing. Aroma has some spearmint accents, some hoppy spruce accents. Flavor is solid with nice light citrus bitterness, some light caramel sweetness, a touch of sweet cake-mix accents, some grassy notes in the back end. Nice, smooth mouthfeel. tillmac62 (734) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2017
BOD 215/16. World class head volume, good retention and quite outstanding lacing. Pours a clear golden with a healthy dose of amber that produces a copper hue.
Very good nose that is slightly sweet with pear and pineapple fragrances coupled with a bit orange. The base sweetness is more bready than biscuit. Caramel notes are present, but subtle.
The body is light but approaches light medium. The texture is smooth and is slightly slick. The carbonation body balance is world class. The middle provides a lively effervescent burst to open up the flavor profile. The finish is finely bubbled and prickly.
The flavor profile is good. Intensity is adequate, balance is very good but complexity is lacking and falls short of the promise that the nose provided. Bitterness is mild and is mostly herbal in nature but does have a touch of zest from the finish on. Mid-palate sweetness is very well balanced and is mostly biscuit in nature. Caramel is almost nonexistent but does become discernible before the finish. The predominate malt influence is the nutty biscuit character. Herbal hop flavor tends to dominate. The slightly sweet middle does allow pear to emerge with a touch of pineapple. The finish lingers with a distinct herbal note.
chinchill (5011) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2017
22 oz bottle.
Looks good, with a deep, clear amber body topped by a large and durable off-white head. Patterned, sticky lacing gets left on the glass.
Aroma: I realize this is made with American hops, but the hoppy aroma is earthy and dank, suggesting European hops, albeit with a distinct fruity note.
Flavor: piney and grassy with faint citrus.
Feel: prickly medium carbonation with medium+ body.
