look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Just noticed I'd never reviewed this, one of my faves.

A: 3.75 - Very pale straw color, a touch hazy, with a small, airy head.
S: 4.25 - Deliciously fruity aroma, lemony, with a floral hop scent.
T: 4.5 - Great mix of flavors! Lots of fruity esters, notes of citrus as well as tart apples. Bitterness isn't overly high but it's a substantial component, with light grassy, floral hop notes. There's a slightly spicy contribution from phenols. Malt is clean, with a touch of pils taste. It's a great combation.
M: 4.25 - Light bodied, lots of carbonation
O: 4.5 - Still a winner! I first had this in Chicago about 6 years ago. It's still just as good despite their big expansion.
