3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
aroma is grainy, mostly clean, floral with slight bite. hops meld well with grain bill here. appearance is polished gold, lasting film, some legs. flavor is still no hard bitterness, just clean well balanced with nuances of fresh cut grass heaviest hop note. mouthfeel is clean, fast, medium dryness.
Tap at the brewpub. The body is bright brass colored with a thin white head. The nose is doughy with a little mango. There is also some hint of almond. This tastes fairly bitter up front with some notes of grapefruit. There is lots of dry bread crust. A clean spicy finish with a little apple core. This is tasty and solid for a summer brew.
