look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Not bad. Poured at a good temperature with a mammoth, foamy, very frothy, light, off-white head that soon settles to a cover that then is there for the duration and some lace. Color is a crystal clear pale yellow with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is mainly yeast, with some malt, spice, grain. Flavor is like nose, sweet up front, then carbonic tang and a bit of bitter and lemon. Fairly simple flavors. Body is ok and is highly effervescent giving a mouth filling sensation. Finish is like flavor, short in length, and leaves little impact. Not bad beer, could drink more.

A: This damn bottle almost took my head off when the cork exploded and gushed everywhere. It took 15 minutes to pour. There is a light haze and golden/orange color. Once I can actually pour this the massive white foam head recedes to nothing. Not much lace.
S: Earthy, rustic, peppery yeast. Grassy, lemonny hops in the finish. Mostly yeast, but enjoyable.
T: Really one dimensional. Earthy, peppery yeast with a bit of a lemon twang in the back end.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp, but thin at the same time. Not hard all to drink. Probably not something I am going to grab very often, but fairly enjoyable.

It was a chore to actually pour this. Once I got past that, this was pretty one dimensional. Considering the price for this is about $13 (and I don't usually comment about price), not something I am going to revisit soon.

4.45/5  rDev +30.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured a straw color with a 1 finger white head that dissapated quickly.
Aroma: Lots of fruity esters. Pears, apples. Medium floral hop character. Some alcohol presence but not overpowering. soft Malty character
Flavor: Spicy, fruity esters supported by the pilsner malt character. Taste is dry but not too dry, balanced by the malt and the hops. Moderate bitterness and some floral hop flavor comes through.
Mouthfeel is solid. The balance between sweet but not too sweet and dry but not too dry is achieved. Medium body. Some alcohol warmth comes through. Very smooth.
Overall: I'd give this all 5's if it was substantially carbonated. A very nice well balanced beer. I'll pick up a few more and condition them for a few weeks and revisit this brew.
Good Job South Austin!
