look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pretty golden body with a creamy finger of head.

Nose is grassy hops with a distinctly sweet note.

Flavor starts out sweet, then sort of spreads it around a bit. Grassy hops, candi sugar, tart lemon, clean finish.

Mouthfeel has a bit of the old "Sweet-Tart" quality to it. Leaves a tingle on the tongue.

Overall, pretty good, but too sweet. I long for an overhopped Imperial Pils with a Pliny-like understated malt body. Maybe someday I'll brew one.
