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

750 ml cage-corked bottle:

Pours clouded pale gold with a bubbly white head that slowly descends. Not much lacing.

The smell is of lemongrass, somewhat musty, with tinny/metallic notes.

The taste is musty lemongrass with slight honey with a champagne-like character. Yeast, malt and hops converge to bring about a musty sweet and sour character that is pleasant. Finishes dry.

The feel is spritzy, towards champagne-like. Holds up a nicely refreshing body.

It certainly fits the broad style. Nice and refreshing, especially on a hot summer day.
