32/50

Growler from Charleston Beer Exchange, Charleston, SC, USA, shared with a few at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA as part of the regular Friday afternoon informal tastings.
Pour is a completely clear, paler than macro yellow body with a wispy, airy head. Great lace.
Simple beer that falls beautifully into the style. Crisp, refreshing and lacks any kind of skunk. Refreshing with a mild dry bite in the finish.
A number of the geeks at the pub didn’t care for this; I say that their palates are jaded with huge beer, after huge beer, after huge beer. It’s fairly typical of the American problem of lack of appreciation of subtle, lower ABV beers that don’t smack you upside the head. The appreciation of subtlety is not a strong suit of your average American beer seek!
Very solid and certainly better enjoyed in the warmer months, but still a super opportunity for crossover introductions to the beer ignorant (or jaded palates!) ;-). Tasty.
