12 oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear, bright golden color with a medium sized head that has fair retention for the style and some lacing.

Smell is of hops, some lemon grass, some hay.

Taste of sharp hops up front with some dry biscuits, and a bit of tart lemon. Mouthfeel is lively, highly carbonated with a dry, hoppy, peppery finish.

Overall, a very good summertime beer, crisp and refreshing.

Serving type: bottle

3.46/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams lager glass

A - What a crystal clear body! A pale wheat color with a bubbling white head.

S - Cracked white pepper, straw, and honey.

T - The initial taste is dominated by an earthy spiciness from the noble hops. The malt lends a saltine cracker or plain Cheerio character. The finish has a touch of lemon with more spice.

M - Thin body with a seltzer-like effervescent carbonation.

O - A decent choice for a lawnmower brew, especially since it now comes in cans. However, not one of my favorite Sierra Nevada beers or pilseners. I'll take the Kellerweis over this for a yard work libation any day of the week!
