3.9/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a 20 oz. beer mug.

A - One of the best pours I've done yet yields a perfect pillow of head that reaches 1.5 inches or so right to the brim of the glass, a crystal clear, very pale amber brew sitting below it. The head dissipates quick and the color is almost TOO light, but when it first filled the glass, it looked picturesque.

S - Non-offensive light skunk aroma backed up by lots of grain and a hint of hay, grass, and lavender.

T - There's not a whole lot to the taste, but it's got a crisp floral upfront taste with fresh grain to back it up, also carrying a slightly bitter hoppy taste. Just enough bite to lend some zip to the otherwise very light taste.

M - Holds up well with a light yet somewhat substantial body, and fine yet fizzy carbonation. Delicate is the operative word.

D - Let's see:
Modest ABV? Check.
Pleasant yet not overpowering flavor? Check.
Not overpoweringly bitter? Check.
I'd say this is a session brew.

Overall: An excellent summer choice if your craving a tall glass of refreshing brew.

3.93/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a half liter (17 ounce) Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint glass. The neck label pronounces the contents "ALE". A moderate pour brings forth about an inch of bubbly, foamy, golden-white head that recedes quickly, leaving a thin, receding sheen of foam. The color is a pale, ruddy-tinged golden with a splash of green. Moderate carbonation.

Lightly fruity on the nose and palate, with hints of melon and citrus and a good backbone of noble hop bitterness (subtly floral). The malt is lightly caramelly, but with a dry finish and a cleansing, light bitterness. Slight hints of spice and vanilla creep in as it warms.

This was my introduction to this style, and I have to say I rather like it. I would say this particular beer is very smooth, light bodied, and refreshing, like a good lager beer, but with enough yeasty and hoppy complexity to keep it interesting. A good choice for hot weather when you want some flavor too. Well worth the sampling at 4-something for a pint-plus bottle. Keep it up Hennessey Grocery!
