look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A- Light, clear golden with lots of bubbles evident. A half finger frothy head is maintained longer than normal due to the effervesence.
S- Faint biscuity malts and mellow yet pronounced floral hop aroma. There's also an almost nagging hay like grassyness in the background.
T- It's all here, biscuity malt flavors, floral english hops... just in bare minimal quantities. There's also a slight metallic note that lingers in the background.
M- Very carbonated, at least for the style anyway. The carbonation does subside quickly to let you enjoy a generally light bodied thrist quencher.
O- Compared to other examples of the style I generally feel it's sub par. However this beer is not without it's merits. This would be a great beer to have in the cooler for those summer parties to surprise the BMC crowd without being too intimidating, while maintaining just enough something in the taste department for your self.
