3.13/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. I am admittedly not that familiar with this style of beer.
Appearance: Pours a slight hazy straw color, with four fingers of white head that dissipates very slowly. Tons of lacing.
Smell: Grassy hops and bready malt, with maybe a hint of citrus in the background. Reminds me a lot of their Noble Pils, actually.
Taste: Mild malt and grassy hop flavors, with very little bitterness. Tastes somewhat watered down. There's an underlying sweetness, and maybe a slight bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, but very thin, which I think helps make the beer taste more watered down.
Overall: I'm a fan of most of Sam Adams' offerings, but this one just didn't do it for me. It tasted watered down, and all of the flavors were somewhat muted. I barely got any of the "citrus" notes that were advertised. It was certainly drinkable, but I probably wouldn't seek this one out again.
Serving type: bottle
