3.5/5 rDev -8.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear with a light caramel and orange color. Nothing too fancy going on here. Head is retained for 5-7 minutes.
Smell: Yeasty. Smells like the CO2 given off when wort is fermenting. Slightly alcohol and citrusy.
Taste: Rich, slightly bitter first taste. The bitterness diminshes as the beer warms and it finishes pretty smooth. Has a prominent earthy-hop taste which isn't overwhelming.
Drinkability: Not as thick as some medium-type body beers, so it goes down pretty easily.
Serving type: bottle
