look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle in pint glass.
Appearance - Pours a darker golden color with a slight haze. The large head that forms is quite persistent and lasts a good few minutes before fading to a thin white foam, leaving very nice lacing.
Smell - Its a balance of a bit of maltiness (a very light biscuit) with a higher and more potent aroma of citrus (mostly lemon) and some more floral hop aromas. The smell profile seems to enter and leave as one. All being persistent throughout to some degree.
Taste - Some sweet malty flavor mixed with a good deal of citrus. The hop then enters the area and gives a little floral taste to the brew. Very smooth transitions and tastes.
Mouthfeel - A relatively average thickness and a moderate level of carbonation. Its maybe only a very slight bit over the normal brew. Nothing too significant.
Overall - A refreshing beer with a bit higher alcohol content and more flavor savory smells and tastes then the typical refreshing beer (say the typical american lager). I think I would very much enjoy this come spring; after a nice meal, while sitting outside at a picnic table.
