look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz. brown bottle, purchased at the brewpub, poured into an imperial pint.

A: Pours a dark copper with good clarity. 2 fingers of off white head forms and holds nicely. Good lacing.

S: Grassy and floral English hops. Maybe a twist of citrus and juice. Pleasant sweetness to back the hops up. Very clean malts.

T/M: Nice bitterness level for the style. Crisp, grassy, 'spring' like hops with just a bit of citrus. Malts are again very clean with a pleasant balancing sweetness. There's a bit of very light tartness at the back of the malts. Body is medium light with average carbonation. Finish slightly dry.

D: Tasty, low ABV, drinkable... makes a great session.

3.98/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear copper color with a moderate frothy head. A good amount of lacing is left on the glass.

S: Light malty aromas with some floral hops

T: A well-balanced brew with nutty, grainy, and sweet malt flavors up front followed by a touch of hop bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium to light in body with a slick texture and moderate carbonation

D: With a nice mouthfeel and a taste that isn't big, yet is full of pleasant nuances, this has "session beer" written all over it.
