3.33/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Pour: Has the classic eye-candy of a widget beer. Starts off hazy off-white which settles into a copper body with two and a half fingers of dense, creamy white head. Decent lacing and retention.
Smell: Faint malty aroma. Some fruitiness. Very weak.
Taste: Good, but a little lackluster. Taste is reminiscent of a good soft pretzel - bready up front and a sort of salty in the back. Slightly fruity middle.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and very low carbonation. Smooth, but almost a bit flat.
Drinkability: Smooth, easy drinking, and not overly filling. Very sessionable beer.
Final Notes: This beer is alright. I'm not super impressed with it by any stretch of the imagination, but it's definitely palatable. I wouldn't seek it out, though.
Serving type: nitro-can
