look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a huge 2 inch ultra white head. Body is a hazy, lemon-yellow color. Lots of bubbles and carbonation, head retention and lacing are great.

First smell is of spicy yeast, peppercorns, and clove. Also hints of straw malt and lemongrass. Hops are really light and alcohol isn't detected.

Taste is light and crisp, with lots of spice and pepper bite. A lemony twang is also in the mix, with a slight alcohol aftertaste. Not getting much hops, some citrus, light malts round out the beer.

Mouthfeel is light, highly carbonated, and astringent. Head contributed a little to the beer.

Overall this is a semi sessionable, refreshing beer. Would pair great with salads or lemongrass chicken/asian food. Not my favorite style but its a solid beer and glad I tried it.
