Intro: On tap at Holy Mountain Brewing, Seattle. A 9oz pour into a mini snifter.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with a half finger white head, while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Meyer lemon zest and citrus juice with subtle hints of bourbon, almost like a refreshing long island ice tea.
Taste: Lightly sour, lemon zest and juice.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Very nice and refreshing. Would love a bottle to age a year or two.
