Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, pine, pale malt, hint of berry, very light green onion. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly thin, moderate carbonation, clean dry bitter finish. (4/5)

Solid. There’s almost a hint of green onion or cattiness, but it never actually develops to the pint where it’s readily identifiable. I can’t find what this is hopped with, but I’m gonna guess there’s some Citra (or maybe Columbus, or something like it). Well done, especially in the bone dry finish, but slightly thin and, well, not quite bland – but not far off. (15/20)
