3.45/5 rDev -6.5%
12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Bright pale gold in the glass the head starts out about a finger thick and then settles to a fine film on the top of the liquid. The smell is quite yeasty at least that is the first thing I notice. Behind that there is a bit of banana maybe some lemon or citrus and finally some bready/wheaty malt. This beer starts out quite sweet, the malt comes through but it doesn't seem much more than a single dimension. There is some bitterness but just a touch and some peppery spiciness but again everything seems kind of muted and like it needs more. Some of the alcohol comes through in this one which I maybe expected for the style but that tied with the sweetness reducing the mouthfeel a bit for me. Overall I'd have to say that this is just so so maybe a nice attempt but I would have expected better from this brewer.
