2.98/5 rDev -14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75
Appearance - Pours a hazy, straw blonde color. The head is about a finger thick, with fair retention. Sparse lacing.
Smell - Not much in the way of smell. Faint citrus notes. Light bread. That's about it.
Taste - Dirty lemon. Moderate bready malt qualities. Finishes with a mellow rind zest.
Mouthfeel - Light, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Somewhat bitey.
Overall - Not necessarily what I was expecting, but it's a drinkable beer.... for about one beer. The lemon flavor can become overwhelming if drank too fast, or having drank too much.
Update 01/11/13: Second foray into this beer. Not much has changed. Added to the description, gave a slight bump into smell and overall, and that's about it.
