look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a Lost Rhino standard pint glass from bottle dated 28 March, 2013.
A: Clear amber in color with half-finger head, no retention or lacing.
S: Sweet malts, caramel, fruity hops - Fairly docile.
T: Sweet malts followed by a weak, hoppy kick and aftertaste. Hop presence in aftertaste is fruity and somewhat metallic. Beer became noticeably better as it warmed: Malt flavors began to truly take center stage and the metallic note dissipated.
M: Above average carbonation, medium yet wet mouthfeel.
O: I enjoyed this beer overall, it scratches a major itch, yet is not my favorite example of the style. This is highly sessionable, with the added bonus of the carbonation slowing down consumption to an extent.
