3.45/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle. Bottle says to 'enjoy by 04/03/13'. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a nice ruby copper color with about two fingers worth of fluffy off-white creamy head.
S - Light bready malts with a faint whiff of citrus hops in the background. Not a complex smell, but not off-putting either. Smells lightly refreshing and inviting.
T - Taste follows the nose, lots of nice bready malts paired with a hint of grapefruit hops and a bit of fresh lemon / orange. The bottle says it best, itself, at describing this beer claiming it is "nearly on the modest side". It is a much more tame beer than a lot of the raging hop assaults that Stone Brewing releases. A nice change of pace. Nicely balanced with a nice light body.
M - Smooth and clean mouthfeel. Just a very slight bitter hop aftertaste.
Overall, it is highly drinkable at only 5.40% abv, lightly bodied, and remarkably well-balanced. Definitely a nice take on the style by Stone, I would have it again.
