4.25/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
pop open a bottle (quite a bit of carbonation pop) and pour to a regular pint glass. Actually takes a bit of time to get it all in the glass, since there's crazy head rushing to the top. Straw yellow and clear for the first half of the pour, with steady streams of bubbles rising fast to form that billowy, puffy head. gets a bit hazy when the rest of the bottle goes in. from the color at first, you'd think you'd poured a macro-lager. sticky lace hangs around in a some clumps, while a good finger worth of head hangs throughout the enjoyment.
that smell tells you it's no macro! grassy hops in there but not overpowering... maybe just a tiny hint of... nah, i mostly get citrus here. NIce!
tastes a bit grassy and obviously hoppy. a dry effect is there, but just a bit of malt as well in the form of sweetness. no caramels or the like to be found, the hops are the focus, but not over-the-top.
the bubbly carbonation helps bite the tongue in this one, which helps being the body isn't much at all. makes for a nice easy drinker that goes down too easy!
drinkability is good if you like grassy, hoppy beer. and with a ~6% abv i'd say that sessionable for me. it would be easy to have the whole 4 pack at once, but the price will keep me from doing that...
