3.15/5 rDev -13.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
This beer pours a clear bronze color with a very small light head. Lack of carbonation seems apparent as does oxidation. Smell is of tarty lemon and pine cones. The piney flavor comes out in the taste and maybe there's some floral hops in there as well. Eventually it just settles into this grassy flavor. Finish is dry but there are definite signs of oxidation. Lack of malt really hurt this beer, it just wasn't that flavorful to me. I still am really surprised that it is 7.1% abv because I was thinking like 4%, so I guess that's a compliment but otherwise, pass.
