3.38/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance:
Poured into a pint glass with about 1/8" of carbonation that dissipates very quickly. Very distinct copper color and relatively clear.

Smell:
The beer is very hoppy to an almost herbal degree but yet sweet. The malts used are very quant in smell but provide an almost flowery aroma, yet are blended with the hops in the smell.

Taste:
The beer provides for a seemingly balanced mix of lighter malt with mild hops. The hops are evident in the after taste to a degree.

Mouthfeel:
The beer feels light but very carbonated but is very smooth. It has a bit of a dry aftertaste that slowly follows.

Drinkability:
This beer is smooth and easy to drink. Nothing overly bountiful in terms of taste but provides a mild hop balance that is mixed in with the lighter malts nicely.

Serving type: bottle
