Best Quote During Tasting
How many times have you been holding something with one hand and you need to cut it?
|Aroma - Subtle orange zest and citrus hops (grapefruit) come jumping out. There is some spice to the hops as well that sneaks in at the end. Malts are caramel and bread crust.|
|Appearance - Pours a medium gold with a fluffy white head that never fully leaves and clings to the glass creating lacing the entire time you drink it.|
Flavor - The flavor mimics the aroma to perfection. There's nice spicy and citrusy hops and it's got a sweetness that doesn't match the bitterness from the hops.
|Mouthfeel - Medium+ body and medium carbonation leave this one just shy of creamy.|
|Overall Impression - I'm so glad this was a good beer because it's for such a good cause and 4 Hands is sure to sell a bunch of it. The beer isn't anything too crazy but it's extremely drinkable and at just 5.5% ABV, you can have a few of them. Couple that with that sexy can of theirs and you've got a winner.|
|Aroma - A fair amount of citrus up front with a bit of spicy and floral hops at the end. The malts play second fiddle to the hops, but add a bit of caramel sweetness and a bit of grain.|
|Appearance - Copper/dark gold in color with a tall white head that leaves great lacing down the glass.|
Flavor - Very similar to the nose with citrus flavors hitting first followed by some earthy and spicy hops. Malt backbone consists of caramel and wheat bread crust.
|Mouthfeel - Medium body verging on full bodied, with healthy carbonation that gives it a smooth creamy finish.|
|Overall Impression - First off, part of each 4-pack goes to charity, so that is a win outright. On top of it, the beer is actually good. It's an easy drinker than appeals to a wide demographic. I picked up a 4-pack of it to fulfill a civic duty and have some good beer in my already full fridge.|
