Served on-draught into a plastic sampler cup (per Alesmith's preferences!) at Alesmith's tasting room. I was shocked at the presentation. Alesmith ought to know better. Reviewed from detailed notes. Expectations were high given the brewery.

A: Pours a one finger head of slight cream, fair thickness, and good retention. Colour is a semitransparent copper. No visible yeast. Appealing.

Sm: Hops - mainly floral with little bitterness. Some citrus aromas; orange peel is a highlight. Very pleasant and fresh. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Honey, pleasant clean floral hops, citrus fruit esters, and clean unobtrusive malts. Balanced and enjoyable. Not quite refreshing. Well built. Quite fresh. Quite simple for the brewery, but nice nevertheless. No alcohol or yeast comes through. I do wish it were more complex and subtle.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavours nicely. Slightly creamy. Neither too thick nor too thin.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Hides its ABV well. Refreshing and nice. I like it, but Alesmith has far better offerings. Give it a go only if you're a big fan of the style.

Soft gold and hazy with a perfect, champagne like carbonation, topped with 2 fingers of white head.

Smells of phenols, peaches, and coriander.

Tastes of phenols, canned peaches and coriander.

Light body, quite dry with moderate carbonation.

Got in Chiang Mai, drinking it here July 9th, 2017. Love the brewer, not their strongest beer in my opinion, but well executed.
