Felt pretty weak to me, but not watery or anything. It's okay.

Poured slightly hazy light straw color. 1" head stood for a minute, great carbonation. I get citrus and a bit of hops. Crisp feel, with some alcohol at the finish. I like the style and this is another good one in a field of many good ones.

Great brewery, but not my style. Golden pour with thin white head. Aroma is a little bit of funk - I can never put my nose on middle-European hop varieties. Somewhat malty, which saves it for me. Very clean finish which is also nice.

Grainy, crackery malt, floral hops, and a lemony/skunky character form the aroma. Minerally, earthy hops counter slight malt sweetness.

A moderately bready, lightly crackery, and slightly sweet malt backbone provides a base for lemony hops upfront, which fades to an earthy bitterness at the finish. A fair amount of astringency creeps in late, accenting the bitterness and driving it deeper.

A bit too harsh, and the skunky/lemony hop character is offputting.
