3.18/5 rDev -21.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
A: a golden body with a white head. Nice retention and decent lace
S: Lightly toasted and mildly sweet pilsner malts. A mild sense of citrus hops. There was also a mild minty quality to it.
T: Very well balanced. Malts had a nice toasted bread like quality. There was a subtle sweetness from it. Hops were all citrus hops.
M: Seemed very light on the palate. It was very easy to drink. The carbonation was appropriate.
O: The beer overall was good. The pilsner malts were a nice change from the caramel malts. I was happy the citrus hops were not overdone. I am not a big fan of citrus hops. It seemed really easy to drink and the alcohol was well hidden.

3.63/5 rDev -9.9%

pretty massive head on an easy pour, tons of wilding through the environs of the glass, bright golden straw color and lots of clarity, the head has good staying power and the lacing is also very good, a nice looking beer
definite musty-earthy hops, slight mango/citrus underneath, bready sweet malts hold this up, a well balanced mongrel, I personally would prefer a bit more kick from the hops in the aroma
fairly weighty in the mouth, very hefty and syrupy, more sweetness than bitter here, there is a mere twinge of bitterness that does linger in the background for some time which makes this drinkable considering the sweetness level, however it is definitely more of a malt peep show here (and I am out of quarters), this is a very smooth brew, the carbonation almost reminds me of german wheat beers for some reason, it drinks very light but yet the body is so deceptive, it also certainly packs a nice punch
a tasty brew, not the love of my life but I wouldn't kick it out of bed, well crafted but a little lax in the hop department for my personal tastes
