Appearance: Pours a pale straw color with a foamy head that dissipates quickly.

Smell: Grainy aroma and floral hops were noticeable.

Taste: Pleasant sweetness that isn't overwhelming. Pale malts are really nice and just a touch of hop bite as it finishes. Not bursting with flavor, but enough to call it flavorful.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with nice smoothness. Super drinkable.

Overall: Not sure what type of beer to really call it, which is really the only thing I can complain about. Brought it to a BBQ and it was perfect for the warm weather.

Thanks to woodychandler for this one. Poured into nonic. Poured a lightly hazy orange-amber color with about a half-inch of off-white head that had good retention and very good lacing.

The aroma was mostly piney hops with just a bit of grain showing through. On the tongue the malt shows through stronger and the hops play a lesser role.

The body was good, crisp and clean, with a slightly sweet finish. Drinkability was good, ya good easily drink a few of these. Overall, a decent brew that would be in my regular rotation if it were local to me. Worth trying if you see it.
