3.9/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a goblet.
Appearance: Pours a dark, reddish amber. It came out of the fridge a little cold, so there wasn't much head and it dissipated pretty quickly.
Smell: Funky, musty, earthy citrus and piney hops aroma. A touch of caramel sweetness but not much. The smell is just alright. It's alright, but not great.
Taste: Much more balanced than the nose would indicate. Sip starts with a big bite of carbonation...sharp and prickly. Lots of rich caramel malt flavor....very nice. The finish is dry and mildly bitter. Nice tasting.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. The carbonation is a bit much, but it doesn't derail the beer on the whole. Obviously, the drinkability is superb at 4.4%. There's a lot of flavor in this eminently sessionable beer.
Overall: When you want a quality, well crafted beer with not a lot of alcohol, Levitation should be near the top of your list.
Serving type: bottle
