Tarnished gold with pocked, crusting off white froth. 4
Crusty, doughy fresh loaf with soap, leaf, and lemon oil hops - mild but fragrant. 3.75
Toasty grain with big juicy orange sneaking in early and turning more oily tangerine and salty grapefruit hops. 3.75
Slight white melon finish and pop of numbing linger.
Only just past light, slick, slightest chew. 3.5


-- Juicy little hit of citrus and real IBUs - not many but they’re there. It being SN, there’s malt still no matter how many hops, but in this case it might be a bit much: it pushes it towards being a punchy English-style pale. Combine that with a greasy yet slightly thin body, and - nice though it is - I’m not sure this hits the concept of a beer I want to session. 3.75

SN, with their size + skill, could’ve made All Day. They didn’t.

On tap at The Top in Gainesville. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small fluffy white head. Not a huge aroma here but some nicely floral hop aromatics with a hint of hay and light fruits. Flavor is lightly bitter, crisp, with a nice mix of grass, light citrus, and floral notes, and of course some of that characteristic SN flavor in there that I can’t describe. Light bodied with plus carbonation. Nice beer.

The nooner session is decent but not as good as others....e.g. Founders All Day. The beer pours a nice golden color with thin white head. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a solid offering but not the best.
