3.63/5 rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A - pours slightly hazy golden amber with a slightly off white head. Head dissipates relatively quickly, leaving a bit of foam on the top. Leaves a bit of splotchy lacing (not much) and does not appear to be overly carbonated.
S - the malt backbone and floral and citrus hops are nicely balanced on the nose. Some toffee and caramel notes there as well. Nothing too crazy here, just a solid example of the style.
T - a bit of floral and citrus hops up front and then moves back into the caramel and malty backbone of the beer. Very nicely balanced again, as it should be. Not too much in the way of hops, not too much malt. Pretty dang good.
M - medium to light bodied. Moderately carbonated. Finishes smooth.
O - overall, a solid beer. Nothing outstanding, but as I said above, a fairly decent example of the style and sessionable as well. I would definitely pick up a six pack for a barbecue or party.
