look: 3.5
smell: 3.25
taste: 3.75
feel: 3.5
overall: 3.75

A – A very weird shade of brown with tons of mini floaties throughout. Head was short lived just a 1/4 inch that fades to a mildly sticky lace ring.
S – Well it is quite grassy and I can smell some peppercorn along with some flowers? It’s an interesting smell I didn’t expect for a beer kind of smells like potpourri.
T – Very herbal and spices with an almost oaky finish. I really can’t taste the hops over the flood of sage and peppercorns but it is mild enough and balanced to drink. Second sip it taste more like tea leaves and berries. This beer is all over the place!
M – Kind of watery, not very hoppy but overall light to medium on the palate.

Overall a very balanced herbal beer but with a name like “5 Grass Hoppy Ale” I really expected more hops. Still it is quite good.
