Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours clear golden color with a billowy white head of foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – A lightly toasted malt and biscuit aroma mixed with a little bit of a caramel smell are the most pronounced. Along with these smells comes some other aromas of a light floral and grassy nature.

Taste – The taste begins with a crisp lightly toasted malt flavor with a little bit of a corn and caramel. As the taste advances it bitters up some with flavors of a grassy and hay-like nature coming to the tongue. Along with these flavors, some other hop flavors of a floral and a bit of lemon citrus come at the very end, leaving a rather crisp and drier flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that slightly higher. For the mix of sweet malt and grassy flavors the feel is rather good as it maintains enough thickness to uphold the flavor all while the carbonation helps keep it more refreshing and crisp.

Overall – A very easy drinking and nice crisp brew. This is one great brew for the summer months when sitting outside and enjoying the world.

Clear golden colored beer with a middle sized puffy white colored head.

Smells malty with a flowery hop aroma. Soda cracker malt with noble hops somewhat grassy it also smells a little sweet.

Starts out mildly sweet and a little bitter. Slightly grassy this has a sharper hop bite than expected. and that is about it, sort of boring.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall an OK beer.
