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

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a golden amber color with a billowy two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading slowly over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma was largest of a bready malt smell mixed with some herbal and grassy smells. Along with these was a lighter citrus and light fruit aromas as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice crisp malt taste. As the flavor advances notes of hop come to the tongue with the flavors being a combination of citrus grapefruit and herbal hops. Along with the hop so too comes some lighter fruit flavors of apple and pear, which sweeten the flavor ever so slightly. In the end the sweetness of the fruit fades some with the hop getting slightly stronger, leaving a nice balanced and crisp flavor of a light hop and bready base to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was on the medium side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that was rather average. Both made for a very drinkable and refreshing beer with a nice crisp feel.

Overall – A rather refreshing beer overall. It has a nice blend of hop and malt and a good level of sweetness to keep it quite balanced.

Serving type: on-tap
