look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Draft at Duckworths Ballantyne. Pretty clear gold pour, thin white layer. Sticks to the glass a bit.

Aroma, some pine and citrus zest. A little bready pilsener like malt.

Taste, light biscuit, heavier pine and citrus zest again. Bitters linger quite a while. A little more caramel and grain comes though as it warms, but very little.

On the light side body wise, nice smooth carbonation. Drinks very easily.

More of an ipa than a pilsener, probably why it is rated so high. Needs more malt and grain balance. Very straight forward.
