3.6/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle poured into a pint glass, showing a clear golden copper with a half inch of off white cap. Light retention and lace with very little apparent carbonationn in the liquid.
Offers a nice hop aroma, with citrus notes interplaying with a herbal/flowery character as well. Not much of a oily/resin character yet bright and tropical in nature.
Taste is slightly sweet with citrus and bready malts on the tongue. Offers again a light level of carbonation and a rather short finish. Feel is squarely in the middle of the road. Full for a lager yet lighter than one might expect given the solid look and aroma.
Overall a decent brew yet a bit nondescript as well. Lacking in bitterness vs. what I expected from the label, what with 'double' and 'IPL' mentioned, though I'm referring largely to the 'IPL' here as double is obviously not an ABV reference. And at 5.0% it drinks like a citrusy Pale Ale. Low carbonation is surely a deterring factor for this particular bottle. A decent Pale Lager yet not representative of expections.
