3.1/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

CSA pours a crystaline yellow with a fairly thin white head until you get all the way down to the end of the bottle. Then, as the last few drops drain into your glass, a glob of brown sediment unglamorously thuds into the mix. This addition creates a murky medium amber color and thorougly kills the head. In about fifteen minutes all of the sediment will congeal again at the bottom of your glass, but I suggest swirling the beer to mix it back up. Taking that last pull on your pint and coming up with all sediment is no fun, believe me.

The beer smells of white grapes with a fairly tart edge. The aroma is fresh and sweet, something like standing in a mountain meadow in springtime. In fact, the smell is probably the best thing about this beer, and that's saying something coming from a guy with a poor sense of smell.

It all starts bittersweet and fizzy with a slight toffee undertone. Then this ale settles onto the tongue with a medium body, a monotone bitter flavor, and some malty smoothness. Let it sit too long, though, and a ton of carbonanted bubbles will effectively obscure any taste you may be trying to detect. The beer then finishes smooth and fairly light with no change in flavor. There is minimal aftertaste, but what does remain on your tongue will have a somewhat oily texture.

Overall not a bad beer, but I found the sediment to be unappetizing, and I'd prefer something with just a little more flavor complexity.
