Pours crystal clear with a third of a glass of pristine, white foam. Retention is really nice, slowly becoming frothy. Not much lacing.
Aroma is full of hops. Pine hops with citrus and grassy hops adding extra notes. Very light malt scent that consists of bread and a bit of sweet.
Taste is sweet and bread malt. The bread malt lasts throughout but both are subtle. Hops in the middle to the end, which is more behind the malt and not as forward as it was on the sniffer.
Light in the mouth with average but zippy carbonation. Crisp.
A solid beer that is crisp and refreshing. Now that I have had it, I will keep it on the list for next summer. The ABV makes this a prime suspect for sessions to help rehabilitate after mowing the lawn on a hot, humid day in July. Enjoy!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
