3.33/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Bottle date on the side.

Appearance: Hazy orange amber beer with a white foamy/creamy head. Settles to an ample lace with good rentention and firmness.

Smell: Spicy hop aroma, slightly pungent with fruity esters. Chinook hops all the way, even a bit eye watering with a woody character.

Taste: Even bodied, with an even smooth mouthfeel. Decently balanced in that no single flavour dominates. Malt sweetness is thin, hop bitterness has a limey twang to it with a touch of salt and background seltzer water taste, also thin. Finish is pretty clean, overall.

Notes: Even though there's not a whole hell of a lot going on with this brew, it is balanced ... and extremely easy to drink, making it an awesome session beer. "Mellow, effortless, groovy. Enjoy!" ... just like the bottle says.

Thanks to Arctic Liquors for the sample.
