3.55/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Taco Mac in Perimeter. Pours a lighter yellow color with a flimzy white heading. Very little lacing and heading after a minute or two.

Very little aroma here. Some slight doughy bread mix with a touch of pine hops. Nothing really standing out here.

Heavy carapils makes me think of a decent macro ale. Very sweet and almost like cereal grains and then a nice solid pop of pine hops. Some slight lemon zest to finish things up.

Good carbonation, nice medium body and good balance.

Not to impressed with this one. Nothing really stood out to me.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: clear, but with sediment suspended though out; copper colored; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a spotty cap; moderate lacing;

S: restrained; floral hops with some light malt;

T: even more muted than the scent; a little metallic; moderate lingering bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: nice to drink, but not memorable; the metallic taste was a little off putting;

Serving type: bottle
