3.34/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Tasted on tap in a pint glass at Sak's in WBL over 40 minutes, with and without food.

Pours a rather cloudy hazy bronze-orange with a moderate head that falls quickly. Minimal lacing.

Smells both bright and biscuit-like with a touch of earthy depth. Pine spice, grass, with pineapple and a touch of lemon. Pale malts with a touch of caramel come through the middle with a hint of floral essence.

Floral and herbal hop notes ride right alongside the bright start to the taste profile. Orange and touch of pithy grapefruit come later. Biscuit malt is the foundation, and it's not bad. Though the overall flavor profile lack heft. And it has an angular mid-palate element that detracts a touch from its drinkability.

Light to medium bodied with decent buzz of carbonation. Fairly smooth, but nothing exciting. Finishes tannic-dry.

Overall, this isn't a bad beer. And it's drinkable without eats. But after an interesting start, it gets a little boring the deeper into a glass you go.

Serving type: on-tap
