3.47/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very transparent amber with a small head.
Nose shows peachy and spicy hops with a fair bit of sweet malt (slightly grainy) and honey.
Flavours are very similar, but with more grainy malt and a slightly herbal flavour that I also remember from their Captain Cooker beer (that at the time I thought was the manuka). Very light bitterness.
Light body with carbonation that really could be higher.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

On tap in the beer garden at the brewpub. 4% ABV

Deep golden with excellent clarity and a decent head.

Feel: Crisp, with medium+ carbonation and a dry finish.

Quite aromatic and fruity for style, and with high quality at that. The flavor is more average but certainly satisfying. Lasting, mildly bitter, hoppy aftertaste.

O: Recommended, although certainly not the most interesting beer from Mussel Inn.
