A- pours clear and golden with a two finger foamy white head, good retention after the pour

S- floral and citrus hop with some buiscity malt, a bit of grain

T- subtle dry hopped flavor with a grainy-yet-sweet malt balance, dry finish that is slightly bitter

M- light-med body with low carbonation and a slightly foamy mouthfeel, slick finish

O- well balanced and great drinkability, a sold light drinking beer with just enough flavor

Served ina pint.

A - Pours a light citrus amber with a pillow-like white head. Fair retention with great lacing.

S - Pale biscuits, fair hop presence and a touch of citrus.

T - Dry hop bitterness atop touches of caramel malt. Not overpowering in any way, yet lacks robust character.

M - Light+ carbonation with malty light body.

O- Nothing crazy to speak of in this guy, but a solid brew I could drink a LOT of.
