Pours out a clear golden color that produces a white half finger head with a normal pour. I was able to get a full finger with and aggressive pour. The head settles down to a think lace around the glass but does retain and sticks around the glass for the life of the beer.

The aroma is light with hints of lemon zest and pale grainy malt. Not a lot going on but nothing terrible. Very clean nose

Very light in flavor with that lemon zest and grainy yest soft malt. Kind of grassy hop with some hints of citrus.

finished very clean and quenching on the palate. Super drinkable ale.

If they would have called this ale a Kölsch ale, Then it would be perfect!! Just does not match the profile of this style at all
