3.6/5 rDev -10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a pint glass.
4.5 A: Really nice looking brew. Clear orange amber color. Two inches of dense head with above average retention and tons of lacing.
4.0 S: Loads of floral hop aroma going on. Grapefruity citrus and a bit of woodiness.
3.5 T: Pretty good, but lacks depth. Grapefruit citrus hops again, but not as pronounced as I'd like. Seems to be some crystal malt, but malt character is minimal and makes the beer a bit unbalanced even though it isn't that bitter to begin with. Based on the nose, I expected a lot more. This is very much like a watered down Nugget Nectar.
3.0 M: Surprisingly light in body. Carbonation is lower than I would like. Very smooth, but that simply isn't enough.
3.5 D: This is Nugget Nectar after suffering from a debilitating disease for several years. Its not bad by any stretch, but it doesn't stand alone.
