Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A - Slightly hazy orange amber with a quickly-dissipating head that leaves no lacing.
S - Fairly sour aroma with a light malt backing.
T - Minor raspberry with a grainy, macro-lager backing. Little complexity to this one. Finishes clean.
M - Light bodied and fizzy. Insubstantial, but easy drinking.
D - Good drinkability. Decent taste, clean finish, and low ABV make this a decent session brew.
overall - I was hoping for more pronounced raspberry here. Sure, it's noticeable, but it's kind of fake and doesn't comprise much of this one's flavor profile. Drinkable, but hardly amazing.
