look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 16 oz. tallboy can into a standard shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Beer pours a very clear slightly dark golden color with two finger of very delicate white head. Very nice lacing and head retention.
Smell: Citrus fruits - orange peel and lemon. Some wildflowers, graham cracker, cinnamon and honey. Very nice smelling lager.
Taste: Floral and slightly sweet. A touch of honey as well as more ripe citrus fruit flavors.
Mouthfeel: Eminently drinkable at 5.0%. Light in body with sharp biting carbonation. Slightly creamy throughout with a nice, dry finish.
Overall: This is a surprising beer. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I certainly enjoyed. This is a sessionable, hoppy lager and though this one was reviewed from a glass I can attest it drinks very well from the tallboy can.
Serving type: can
