3.8/5  rDev +6.1%

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze and a moderate effervescence. Head poured a finger of frothy white foam which had moderate retention. Pretty attractive, I'd say.

Smell: lightly sweet with a nice malty character, a hint of fruitiness, and a light dose of noble hops. I find it balanced and refreshing.

Taste: a little bit fruitier than the aroma, but in general there's a nice balance here of very-slightly-toasty malt and a light bitterness. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and a good creaminess for the style.

Overall: this is a highly drinkable beer; I'm finding I quite like it. It's a very traditional take on the style, but I find it well-made and quite refreshing.
