Served on-tap at Amity Hall in the West Village. I didn’t want to have this beer; I was supposed to be drying out for a day, but my friend @bearhuman was in town and I waited to see her off. It wasn’t so exceptional that I regretted the decision to leave half of it on the counter. But the initial bite was pretty good. Maybe that was just my decision to drink again talking though.
Appearance: Looks like a pilsner, but it still has a body. Decent head, not much lacing to speak of. Golden color tells you what it is, if you didn’t already know.
Smell: No real aroma to write home about, but I have a hard time knocking light beers for that. There’s some malt, a little hops.
Taste: Not gonna be my session beer, but the ingredients seem good enough. Maybe a hint of citrus in it in addition to the malt and hops. Bites a bit. I will up my beercabulary to do better justice in the future.
Mouthfeel: Crisp. Goes down easy. But only very little substance. It’s like a typical action movie with no compelling suspense.
Drinkability: it’s funny because out of all the categories I gave this the best rating, and I didn’t even finish my pint.
Only tastes from now on in the BeerQuest. Only tastes.
