look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Chatham Tap.

Golden in color. Nice finger and a half of egg white head that clung to the glass for dear life as the beer emptied.

Aroma is strongly sweeter malts, with some citrus poking through.

Taste is nice approachable hops up front, some citrus, faint grapefruit. Then it bolts into a bready malt backdrop, followed by the crisp, drinkable, mildly hopped finish, with delicate bitter apple in there.

Mouthfeel was good, thinner, but it made the beer super drinkable.

Not sure of the ABV on this one, but it felt sessionable. Just one of those beers you'll pick up and drink... and really dig.

Overall, a great start from the good people over at FSB. Hop for Teacher is nicely balanced, a little on the maltier side, but extremely drinkable -- and approachable for those not into radical amounts of hoppiness. Look forward to reviewing more of their work. Good stuff guys. Will have you on tap soon!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-gold, cloudy...very light head, good lacing on the glass
S-not really detecting much at all, almost neutral. It might be the Osiris I had before it!
T-malt, hops, malt, hops again...can it switch four times? The bitterness really
seems to linger at the end
M-light mouth feel....the carbonation is pronounced on the tongue and mouth
O- not a bad beer...I would almost consider it to be a session beer

Serving type: on-tap

3.84/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear gold with a thick, creamy white head.

S: Aromas of biscuit, caramel, lemon, lime, bitter orange, grapefruit, and pine are present on the nose.

T: Notes of lemon, lime, bitter orange, grapefruit, herbs, pine, spruce, cream, caramel, and biscuits are pronounced and relatively easy to distinguish. The finish is bitter and resinous, presenting the drinker with notes of citrus and pine underscored by faint biscuit and caramel flavors.

M: Medium in body and a bit slick. There is a distinctly resinous feel that develops the longer the beer is held in the mouth. Carbonation is firm and prickly.

O: This is not a bad pale ale by any means. It would definitely make a pleasant warm weather beer. I could also see it being a good introduction to hoppier styles for craft beer neophytes.
