330 ml bottle purchased during my recent trip to Vegas. I poured this one into my beer goblet after warming for a few minutes from the fridge.
Appearance: A nice crystal clear golden straw with lots of effervescence. A short white head with loads of tiny bubbles.
Smell: Much bigger than the color suggests. Boozy, or at least aromas that are associated with boozy. Oak and light malts, no hops are noticeable.
Taste: A surprisingly dry tart taste. Lemony in it's puckering ability. A touch acidic, all the while being very smooth. Each sips begs you to drink the next sip. There is a cracker character to the malt component. The little hops are simply for very light bittering. The finish is pretty strong and lasts for a while.
Mouthfeel: The body is light but not watery. The intense flavors easily coat the palate. The carbonation is high and spritzy.
Overall: A curveball of a beer. Very interesting and unexpected, I will be on the lookout for this one again.
Serving type: bottle
