3.98/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Hard to tell drinking out of a bottle... While not ideal, obviously, it seemed like a better option than the available plastic cups.
Smell: Mild hints of peppery malt, not especially noteworthy. Made me want to continue, but more out of curiosity than from anything it offered up.
Taste: Maltier than the smell suggested, and thankfully so. Early, bready, malt flavor, with a distinct earthy undercurrent.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, with better than average carbonation. Starts strong and finishes stronger, a little thin in between. Clean malt aftertaste.
Drinkability: Very easy to drink. Any complexity it has gets lost after the first one or two, but no reason not to continue. It's a shame New Belgium doesn't distribute this to Northeast U.S.
Serving type: bottle
