4/5 rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A: pale amber, clear. 3 fingers of bubbly white head with good retention.
S: (i have a bit of a cold, so i can't smell all that well right now.) malt, biscuity grain.
T: carbonation fills the mouth at first, so it's hard to pick out the initial taste, little sweet in the middle, crisp finish, only a hint of bitterness. not picking out the hops, but that's likely due to my aforementioned cold.
M: quite carbonated, but it matches the style. low-medium body give this a balanced profile.
overall: maybe it's the logo on the front, but this beer leaves me pining for the bleachers at Fenway (just a week or two away). great early summer beer -- i wish they served this out there.
