  • Pours clear with a half glass of white, large bubbled foam via a vigorous pour. Retention is well above average with lacing that is sticky beginning immediately.

    Aroma is fruit and grassy hops along with a large dose of sweet, caramel malts.

    Taste is really sweet throughout. There are attempts to balance with citrus and grassy hops that linger with some light bitterness in the finish but sweet. Towards the end of touch of bread malt slightly tantalizes the sense.

    Light in the mouth, almost thin. Carbonation is high, possibly trying to make it seem bigger. Dries a bit in spite of being juicy up front.

    Very drinkable, clean beer. The sweetness is a little left out there. Could have a few of these without problem but I don't know if the caramel sweetness would prohibit. Enjoy!
