3.9/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: beautiful clear amber, sparkly, a thin layer of suds on a hard pour that quickly disappears
Aroma: up-front piney/grassy/resiny hop nose, angel food cake sweetness, light diacetyl
Flavor: TOASTY maltiness up front with a nice subtle sweetness in the background, unctuous grassy hop flavor, quite dry, a mild hop bitterness creeps in slowly towards the finish, a nice dry and tart finish with a mellow malt and hop aftertaste, hoppy burps
Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, light carbonation, and a bit minerally and astringent
Overall Impression: Great beer. There's a reason this is a hallmark of the style.
Serving type: bottle

3.96/5 rDev +0.3%

A: Pours a clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some light apricot highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy off-white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of mottled very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light aromas of biscuit malts with hints of caramel sweetness.
T: Upfront the beer is slightly sweet with a moderate flavor of biscuit malts and just a touch of caramel notes in the sweetness. Hints of butter and toffee with a light note of earthy hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: Easy to drink and sessionable. Nice complexity of flavor and definitely one to enjoy again.
