3.88/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Very yellow golden, not much head but some decent carbonation.
Smell: Straw with some citrus hops.
Taste: Some decent hops with some straw. Pleasant.
Mouthfeel: Some decent carbonation that plays with the intentionally thin style.
Overall. I'm quite conflicted about this. If their goal was the ideal tailgating beer, they hit this out of the park! I can really see myself taking this camping, grilling, tailgating, "bike rides" anytime I need a solid beer that is going to taste good for several cans, and might be ok if it warms up a bit. On the other hand, the beer didn't really impress on the whole scale of things. I wish they could have shoved a bit more ABV into it or made it a bit more flavorful.
Serving type: can
