3.9/5 rDev +4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
2 fingers of sizzlin white stuff, aggressively crackling, lacing is not all too much here, the head settles down to nearly zippo in a matter of moments, near to clear straw color, a central circle of bubbles emanates from the bottom center of the glass pacing well to the top
initially dry mold (in a pleasant way) lofting off into sweetness, faint touches of euro hop (herbal/earthy), nothing spectacular but nice and good for the style
refreshing soda pop like carbonation keeping it light and spritzy, kind of kolsch light, some kolschs have a strange aftertaste (for me) but this is pleasant and of course has that honey finish which is really delicious, there is some mild bitterness that is in total balance with the malts and honey notes.
good beer done well, easy drinking, smooth and tasty enough. super pleasant brew. not one of my stellar reviews but this beer is just... really damn good!

3.6/5 rDev -3.2%

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear yellow-amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades very fast leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is very light overall with just some biscuit and a little bit of a honey smell as well as hints of floral and grassy hops. Very light, but non-offensive overall.
Taste - The taste begins with a crisp bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a grainy flavor. While no honey is present upfront, as the taste moves on a honey flavor begins developing on the tongue with it gaining intensity more toward the end. Some very light floral flavors develop at the very end leaving a rather crisp and lightly bready flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are quite nice for the mix of honey and light grain, making for a crisp and more refreshing feel.
Overall – A rather refreshing brew overall with a nice easy drinking feel. It is nice for the price while on tap ( in comparison to other tap prices) but if going for the big bottle it is likely not worth the high price tag.
Serving type: on-tap
