4.4/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a hazy copper/orange hued color, with many columns of finer looking carbonation rising to the top. The head, while retaining rather well, isn't very thick from the pour right to settling, but that's ok I guess. As for lacing, it's modest, with trims of foam clinging to the glass.

S- Sweet aromas all around...and primarily of malt and honey. I guess you could say that there is a slightly citrus-like note hidden as well that reminds me of lemongrass, as it is slightly Earthy at the same time. The finish smells clean, with mild aromas of hop and a somewhat grassy smell too.

T- Again, the flavors follow the aromas closely, but I find it a lot more balanced overall. Upfront, the malt/honeyed sweetness comes through, and is countered by a clean dry grassy goodness, and finished off with more noticeable bitterness from the hops. Malt sweetness lingers on the palate after the swallow. A perfectly flavored beer in my opinion!

M- Solid medium body, but it doesn't feel chewy in the slightest! The carbonation, as it appeared, is fine, and breaks at the right time to allow the full flavor to penetrate the taste buds. A very nice feeling on the palate!

O- I have to agree with the majority on this one...this is an exceptional brew! Full flavored without overdoing it, yet clean and crisp, this makes a great beer to enjoy during hot weather, such as I did, or even to compliment a meal! I recommend this one and hope to enjoy many more of these to come!

11/09/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Far better on tap than from bottle. Bordering on the crisp side. Hops are well under control and there is a slight apricot in the sweetness. In a word, a classy glass...Oops, that was two words, but you get my drift.

Serving type: on-tap
