From a bomber into a snifter
APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, fluffy looking, white head with good retention. Hazy gamboge orange with medium levels of carbonation. Head fades to a foamy cap and sticks to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains and leaves some dots of lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Really big nose with piles of tropical fruit. Pineapple, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and some grapefruit aromas. Big nose, fruity, and really enticing.
TASTE: Starts off with some grassy hops, pale malts and honeydew melon, then moves into a big and bitter finish. Pale malt sweetness and a touch of caramel through the middle, then lots of hop bitterness with piney and grassy notes linger on the palate. Very flavorful and persistent, but lacking that tropical fruit explosion that the nose had advertised.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, smooth going down and finishes a touch dry. Bitterness lingers. Good feel.
OVERALL: The nose was outstanding to say the least, but the taste just didn't follow suit. The tropical fruit that came out so well in the aroma would have been great in the flavor, but instead we were greeted with lots of straight bitterness and grassy hop flavors. Decent, but not what it could have been. Still, very happy to try this and look forward to more Lawson's in the future, as they've always been enjoyable. Cheers again boys.
