76? Poor? Preposterous!
This is my new favorite beer!
Poured into a pilsner glass. Looks like a light amber lager. I don't know. Looks run of the mill. But that head is inviting! Super charged (in the words of Ronald Theriot), after a few sips it dies down so you don't get it all over your face. But you can really smell that aroma during those first few sips. If you've ever had a Blegian anything, you'll notice that familiar scent when it first hits your nose. But the aroma as a whole is earthy, grassy, there's some fruit in there... amazing. Did not expect it.
Taste is phenominal. I payed for what I thought and what was priced to be a Heineken competitor, but got so much more. Can't describe it. Just go buy some and try it.
Mouthfeel is crisp, refreshing, but not lacking. The flavor packs a wallop, and it is 5.4% alcohol, a tad stronger than your typical beer it is placed next to in the cooler. After taste is pleasant and sparkly. Some floral hops lingering in the background?
Overall, I'd say get this beer!
