After the bout with Odell, I pretty much figured Left Hand was going to be outgunned--like pitting Marcelino's bird against Little Jerry Seinfeld.  But this is pretty damn delicious, and refreshing, to be sure.  The flavors are very clean and very simple.  It's obviously very light bodied, and the color is next to water, but also somewhat dry and nicely boozy (but not over the top).  There's very little aroma to speak of, but I wouldn't necessarily expect there to be, and it's not affecting the taste.  In fact, it's helping me smell the delicious food the neighbors are cooking up, which speaks to the food pairing potential of beer (suck it, wine).  My only issue might be the faint aftertaste that hangs around like a homeless women in Brad's living room, but overall I'd say this is a very tasty brew worth your hard earned dollars.
