Poured fom 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Served chilled...
A) Very light amber, with a finger of white foam. The head settled to a dusting. There was a little lacing.
S) This has kind of a cider/white wine spritzer thing going on here. Then transitions to an earthy/leafy aroma. It's interesting, but not to enjoyable.
T) Quite an earthy flavor, leaves and grass. Then a good shot of citrus rind, and some serious zest. Poor aftertaste...
M) Lighter medium body with just way too much carbonation for my liking. I mean, this is well beyond crisp and refreshing. It's just uncomfortable, and the lingering poor aftertaste does not help.
O) I did not enjoy this very much, something just seemed off. If I had this on tap, I would question how clean the lines were. The taste seemed off and the mouthfeel was poor in my opinion. I enjoy Newcastle Brown Ale, so I thought this would be okay. It was not, I cannot recommend this beer.
