4.05/5  rDev +11%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pours a nice golden color that is murky, but does have some transparency. it creates a nice a nice 1-2 fingers worth of head formation with rather decent lacing. head is slightly off white in color

S: nice crispy bready/biscuit right up front with a nice malt backbone and subtle hops lying in the background. i also pick up on a just a slight touch of orange peel. i find the balance quite enjoyable.

T: similar to the nose... biscuits, touch of graininess, slight bitterness from the hops, and a nice citrus note to complement the flavors. not overly complex, but decently well balanced. slight creaminess in the finish

M: medium bodied brew (a bit thicker than I was expecting). leaves a nice dryness on the palate along with some bitter hops.

O: i think this beer is highly sessionable and quite nice to be honest. as previously mentioned, its not overly complex and has a nice flavor profile.

Serving type: bottle
