North Coast has always been a pretty solid brewery, with strong beers that just lack the "wow" factor yet still remain perfectly decent.
Pranqster is no different, it pours a foggy golden with visible carbonation, a light foamy head and thin lacing. Aroma is heavy on sweet plantain and lemon zest, tangy yet still thin. The aroma really opens up in an open glass, by the way.
The flavor is light but blossoms dramatically into a sweet flavor with a hint of tartness moving on to a dry finish. The flavor profile is light but truly nice in the way it fully opens on the palate - it's a very good beer to let linger with each sip.
A solid balance between malt sweetness and hop bite with carbonation to cut through any syrup nonsense. This gives the beer a light yet strong flavor, worthy of a taste, though maybe not the A+ the Bros gave.
