3.55/5 rDev -8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Semi-translucent copper color with an off-white sudsy head.
Aroma: A little bready and yeasty. Almost like a vienna lager with less malt. Fairly clean.
Taste: Like a Cream Ale with that lager component. Interesting bitterness on the tongue. The hops seem to be all bitter and no flavor. Tastes bottle conditioned which in this case isn't exactly a good thing.
Mouthfeel: Pretty thin and drinkable. Lots of carbonation.
Final Thoughts: This actually tastes like a hoppier version of the first home brew I ever made (Cream Ale) which makes it sort of unimpressive. However, it is a very cool hybrid of the ale and lager worlds and you can definitely taste both elements in here.
Serving type: bottle
