A: 3.75 - Very hazy gold with a dense half inch head... in fact, looking at it, there's an incredible amount of sediment hanging in the beer, rather sooty looking. Marking it down off what I was inclined to score at the start.
S: 3.25 - Very little aroma, even putting my nose right up to the foam. A light lemonish scent, perhaps.
T: 3.25 - Sharply bitter initially, giving way to a typical SA house yeast flavor, but little hop taste.
M: 3.75 - Light bodied, nice light feel for a good drinking texture.
O: 3.25 - Not a very good beer, which is too bad, as SA has produced some decent IPAs recently.
