3.8/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a plastic cup. Thank you Amtrak.

Caramel coloured brew, 1/4 inch of head leaving a little lace. Carbonation is mild from what I can see through my plastic cup. Floral/caramel sweetness mixed with a grassy and floral noble hop aroma. A bit of biscuity Vienna malt to back it up as well. Nice and clean.

Taste is of light caramel with a bit of green apple crisp tartness. Grass and hay and earth from the nobles round things off nicely. Again, very clean and enjoyable. Mouth is lightly dry and carbonation is medium. Medium light body, fairly soft.Very drinkable, uncomplex, and clean, just what the style dictates. Enjoyable brew.
