12oz bottle into Samuel Adams sensory glass. 2 finger off-white foam head settles down to almost nothing and no lacing. Slightly hazy gold color looks nice.
Aroma is a bit hit of malt with slightly citric, grassy, cat pee, and piney hops. Upon tasting, the entry is lightly malty then immediately followed by a grassy strong pine and slightly oily bitter astringency. Then a big dose of sweet malt and fresh baked bread comes through in the aftertaste. As it warms up, a stronger sweetness starts to reveal on the finish through the aftertaste which turns it almost too sweet.
Very nice balancing act between the hops and malt. Carbonation is light, enough to tickle the tongue, with mouthfeel being medium light bodied. Fairly crisp finish.
Drinkability is fairly high -- feel this is a pretty nicely balanced brew. The further down the glass it gets, the better I think this beer tastes!
