Washington

3.08/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

pours a hazy straw colour, pretty little one finger head that kept a presence throughout, leaving decent lacing as I drink.

The nose is pretty standard hef fair; citrusy blends with a little bit of doughiness with an underlying sweetness that I can't quite place.
Taste is as I expected based on appearance and smell; there is a lemony zest with an underlying clover honey sweetness and a dough-y bread malt, almost like a sweetened sourdough (don't argue the semantics of sweet/sour, it's the best I can think to describe it!)

carbonation is very active in the mouth, but ultimately it goes down pretty smoothely.
This was a part of the shiner family pack I picked up to appease the masses on this west texas fourth of july. I had pretty low expectations (just being honest) going into it, until I saw the BA page where it received better reviews than I had anticipated. This built my hopes up, and the final product was somewhere in between.
