look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Spicy and floral with rounded flavors of lemon, clover honey, and white flour. Very sharp finish, aggressively bitter but balanced all the same. Pilsner-like hopping with an almost creamy helles malt. The grain becomes almost caramelly, but never really rich or overpowering -- not even always noticeable. Very dry finish. Clean yeast stays out of the way, but unfortunately strips the nose of anything pleasant. Wholly to style with a numbingly hoppy kick at the end, this beer lacks the toasty biscuit edge I've tasted in some examples, but the hops are about as authentic as can be.

Relax, relax.
