Aroma is floral-sweet hops, with a sharp caramel malt smell. Taste is a level mix of floral hop flavors, moderate malt, and slightly dry crispness from the yeast. Finishes clean with mild balance again of all 3.
Blends much nicer, and more pleasant flavors as it warms. I’m not one for warm beer, I typically like it super cold. This one is definitely much better on the last half of the glass.
Nice even smell of dark malts, but not sweet. Clean crisp taste, that spreads out across the palate smoothly delivering waves of dark malts. Hops remain in background just to cut off any lingering malt flavors. Very clean and drinkable.
Aroma of sticky hop sweetness with hints of caramel malt. Clean palate taste of mild malt, goes down quite smoothly with mostly malt and a bit of yeast flavor. Way in the background is a minor hop bitterness. Very tasty.
Nice, broad, bright hop aroma. Taste has hop bite and then a mouthful of hop flavors and bitterness. Has a slight edge to the hoppiness, but not overpowering. Caramel malt sweetness in the background can be tasted in amongst the hop waves.
Faint sweet aroma, like fresh corn. Taste is slightly sweet with a quick sharpness to it of some non descript hop which quickly transitions to a smooth clean malt flavor. Very nice for this style. Not my favorite style (light lager), butt very solid.
Fresh, broad bouquet of floral hop aromas. Hop bitterness slides in soft at first, then builds. Ends with a full flavor of hops across the palate, falling to a slight sweetness and lingering hop bitterness.
Haven’t had this one in a long time. Nice to see I still enjoy it!
I’ve had this before, but never made an official review. Reviewed here on 7/8/2020, bottled on 6/3/2020, so still fresh.
Notable aroma of hop bitterness and malt. Crisp bite of hop bitterness, decent malt flavor without caramel sweetness. Lingering hop bitterness that is notable but not overpowering. But still don’t venture here unless you definitely like hop bitterness!
Light sweetness of hop aroma and some yeast. Flavor is smooth and slides in with hop flavor, but no real bite. Aftertaste has a slight hop edge that lingers, as well as a faint hint of caramel malt sweetness. Refreshing.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
