It’s smooth, it’s a little creamy, it’s a little sweet. If it were just a tad less hoppy and a tad sweeter, it’d be perfect for me. I like that I can taste hops, but they’re not overwhelming. The tall bottle is the perfect quantity for me for an evening. Looks beautiful in a pint glass.
It tastes astringent. Citrus-y? The immediate hit on the tongue is attention-getting. It’s fine until you swallow it; the aftertaste lingers in an unpleasant way. A night of drinking this will guarantee a terrible-tasting mouth the morning after.
This is the kind of beer I would eat with food because I don’t like it that much, so food doesn’t get in the way of savoring it. I had it with pizza.
