      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium body, moderate carbonation. Nice bready, toasty malt background behind a medium fruity hop flavor. Low-medium bitterness. Fruity, mildly citrusy. Clean fruity finish.
      Overall Impression (2)
      Pretty good beer. It would have been nice to know about the sediment before I poured it.
