Poured into a pilsner glass from a 12oz bottle.
Presents itself in a golden-yellowish color with a decent 1.5 finger head. Lots of big, bubbly carbonation bounces up towards the top of the glass in a playful, festive sort of way. Head reduces considerably into a good ring but lacing remains to my surprise all around the edges of the glass. Very clear in appearance. A good take on the style so far.
While not the most powerful around, there's (as expected) an overall grainy, sugar cane filled aroma overall. I can easily sense the malts on the nose, as well as a slight, lemon-y zest, but there's an undeniable skunkiness that serves as a backdrop after all of these flavors waft away. However, in my past experience, this usually is not a problem, and in this case, it ends up producing a mellow, flavorful aroma at the finish.
The flavor retains the slight yeasty skunkiness, but it ends up complimenting the initial waves of hoppiness and grains. The sugary malts really seem to prevail here, even in the aftertaste. It mostly ends up grainy, but there are delightful yeasty flavors and a smidgen of booziness that confort the neck at the finish. This is surprisingly thick, especially for a beer as sessionable as this. Tons of carbonation explode on the tongue at every sip, yet there is a slight astringency that makes it only so uncomfortable to drink, perhaps caused by an imbalance on the hops' part. Nevertheless, this is very balanced, and so easy to drink it could be easily finished quicker than expected if consumed in a passive manner.
A great take on the style, and as simple and subtle as this beer is, it's wholly enjoyable. Years ago, I didn't seem to like it as much, but after a long busy day, I would happily take one of these to set alongside myself as a doze off to the late hours of the evening. Good stuff, and local too!

This pours a light golden color with thin foaming.
There’s an aroma of faded hops and aspirations, pun intended. The flavor has a musty character that makes me think of green apple cider and grains, with a bit of wet grass. I can’t help but wonder how much more this beer could be if it wasn’t in green glass.
