3.4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Tasted On: 07-06-2011
Freshness: Best by 08-22-2011
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Purchased: Single from J. Barleycorn, Nashville

A: Mostly clear, straw-colored beer with a creamy white head 4 fingers high. Fair lacing on the glass. Lively carbonation.

S: Aromas are dominated by citrusy hop characteristics; also spicy and fruity notes.

T: Crisp, bitter flavors are up front, with little malt presence. Also detected some sort of off flavors that were unappealing.

M: Medium to high carbonated feel with a bitter/sour after taste.

O: An interesting beer - I think the ale years gives it a unique twang, but the taste was not something that would make me seek it out again.

Serving type: bottle
