(BA / BJCP)

Brilliantly clear, light yellow gold. Fluffy, well-forming white head. Little staying power.
(3.5 / 2)

Moderate noble hop, floral and lightly spicy. Moderate grainy pils malt. Clean profile.
(4 / 10)

Moderate grainy sweet, bread/toasty malt. Heavy noble hop flavor. Strong hop bitterness. Balance is tilted towards the hops. Finishes dry with significant hop flavor. Aftertaste is hoppy bitterness and heavy floral hops.
(4.5 / 17)

Light body, medium-high carbonation. No astringency, no alcohol warmth. Creamy mouthfeel.
(5 / 5)

Very crisp, hop-focused, easy-drinking beer. Hop flavor is quite heavy handed. Thought the pils malt, although should be light for style, was too light, and should have had more of a role.
(4 / 8)
