Nice looking beer with a decent head. Seemed kind of, I don't know, dry (?) in my mouth. Has some good fruit at the front of the mouth, but after it sits there it doesn't have a nice hoppy bitterness, it just seems odd. I'll drink it, but it's not my favorite.

I'm not big on the idea of session beers in the first place, but I did just come home from jogging, this was cold in the fridge, seemed ideal for the situation. Sweet, watery, corn smell with faint hops. Not as bad as that sounds but not a robust smell, either. Medium straw color, lots of lace. Mildly sweet taste, small hops presence, little after taste. Best served as a cold beer on a hot day.

Pours a straw yellow color, not much for head, small bits of lacing on the glass, fair amount of bubbles clinging to the glass within the liquid though.

Smell has a grassy hay aroma with a fairly strong sweet malt backing.

Taste starts out with a grassy hop flavor, body seems a bit thin though and kind of seltzer water like, decent malt backing for balance, I can see this as a session style beer with nothing too overwhelming.
