look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

In a teku

A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4

S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4

T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4

M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4

Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4

Serving type: can
