  • Poured cloudy with enough big bubbly, white foam for three beers. Not the kind of retention you would expect from all the foam with some spider-web lacing.

    Aroma is sweet malt and floral/grassy hops. Slight on the aroma but good scented burps later.

    Taste is sweet malt up front followed by more malt in the middle, finishing with hops, some bitterness, and mildly dry.

    Medium carbonation and lighter end of mouth feel lend to a smooth drinking brew.

    Based on the sub-name and the picture on the bottle I thought there would be more hops, but still a fare share which are blended well to not overdue hops. Very drinkable. Enjoy!
