A: Lightly cold hazy (my friend’s that was not as cold was almost transparent), golden yellow with greenish tinge—light foamy head leaves faint ring throughout drink 3/3
S: Grassy and citrusy, but not all that strong 9/12
T: Citrusy middle rounded out with floral notes, with alcoholic tinge throughout, finish is a grapefruity hang 15/20
F: Astringent throughout, light carbonation 4/5
Overall: Perhaps Racer 5 was aggressive when it was first brewed 15-some-years-ago, but this is now a quite pleasant and subdued alternative to the hop-assaults on the market today 7/10
Total = 38/50
