Rating: 2.5/5.0

This beer is mediocre cold. Unpleasant warm. It is cool and refreshing at the start with off-putting floral notes hinting at their presence. I don’t have a better way to describe the middle, I would describe it as hollow. The whole thing finishes off with a mild hops bitter. I found the whole experience both pleasant and mildly unpleasant all at the same time. I was left feeling emotionally confused by this beer. Perhaps if I was hot and sweaty I might find it more enjoyable.

5/5 …
