2.06/5 rDev -25.9%
Bottle: Poured a dirty hazy beige color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light grainy notes with faint hops. Taste is a huge letdown with faint aroma of hops with some light unrefined grainy notes and a watery finish. Body is quite full with great carbonation. Huge letdown with almost no fresh hops notes.

This 750 ml bottle picked up in Montreal "on sale" is actually better than I expected. Pours a hazy golden, light brown with a large bubbled & off-white head that leaves an impressive amount of lacing. Aroma has fresh hops, with a medicinal background that I've found in other wet/fresh hop or harvest beers. More resinous than I'd personally choose, but think it's appropriate for the style. The flavour has the bitterness and tang I associate with "c" hops, although I wouldn't have been able to call out Centennial without the label. None of the citrus or tropical fruit tones which often accompany those hops and a rather abrupt transition from thin caramelized malt to pure bitterness.
A beer I'm glad to have tried, but also glad I didn't buy a case.
