Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #49 (Feb 2011):
Ale? Doesn't matter as long as the brewer hits the mark, right? Bright and clear and golden. Quite a spicy nose, but light on the malt. Lager-like smoothness and crispness take the palate for a ride. Thick herbal flavor pushes hard against a dried grassy maltiness. That soon leads to a spicy dry finish. This beer gets right to the point; complex it is not, but it makes up for that with a clean drive to be as drinkable as possible. We were too impressed with that drinkability to really start nitpicking the style--a refreshing Spring Ale it will be.
