4.18/5  rDev +22.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle into Barilla jar.

A: Honey blonde with a 2 finger white head. Head retention is not bad and lacing is decent.

S: I believe this is the ale's best trait. Greenhousey malt over a nice mild hop spice. Key limes and the tiniest hint of pink bubblegum stick. And i just remembered my sister's scented geranium. cant member which variety.

T: Very bright on the palette. Tart and citrusy. Floral and citrus hop presence. then comes the kaffir lime leaves... good stuff. ends with a pleasant bitterness that i think is more kaffir than hops. Good stuff I'd like to pair this with some spicy thai food with kaffir lime leaves. Very very refreshing.

M: Nice medium light feel. Near perfect for this brew.

D: Wow. Lets send a sixer of these 100 feet deep to chill and haul them up and have them on the lake in the summer sun.

3.24/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Clear, semi dark gold. Medium carb. Sticky dotted white lacing with low retention.

S: Wheat barley and a touch of tangy rye. Slightly sweet doughnut like bread.

T: Slightly sweet with a tangy rye bread. A little warm nutmeg taste through the middle. Finishes carbonic and watery. Quite clean with slight sour tang finish.

M: Mildly dry and good reasonably clean finish. Fairly thin.

T: Better than a macro light beer, but only by a slim margin. It sits in limbo between styles for me: If I want water I'll have water, if I want beer I'll drink something bigger.
