Poured from bottle

L: Clear, straw yellow. The head blooms nicely on the pour, but dissipates quickly, leaving only a fine lacing.
S: Pear and the odd impression of vanilla cake.
T: Mild citric acidity. Clean, vaguely spicy finish. Not very complex.
F: Hard to call it undercarbed, but that is the feeling. The body feels very thin, even watery at first. Only the finishing rush of fine bubbles gives it any character.
O: Pretty underwhelming. I'm the first to admit this isn't my style of choice, but it feels like a lightweight entry in the category. Probably great on a hot day in the sun, but difficult to recommend against stiff competition.

Pair with warm cheesy sandwiches, radish salads, fresh strawberries
