Special thanks to Chris at Bella Vista in Philly for sharing this rarity in these parts.
Beer pours a very fluid golden clear into a thick Cantillon glass. A very airy, frothy 2-finger white head settles into an almost nonexistent cap for the rest of the drink. No lacing. It's clear this beer is well attenuated and crisp.
The aroma is light and crisp with a strong aroma of malty biscuit flavors. Light hop bitterness to keep the aroma crisp and refreshing.
Taste is refreshing and light. Flavor is full of malt flavor but with very little if any sweetness. Light fruit notes come through in the middle and then subtle bitterness follows through toward the finish.
Mouthfeel is clean, crisp and refreshing. Strong carbonation moves thr beer fluidly throughout the mouth and makes for an even more quenching drink.
Nice. Definitely a nice session beer on a hot summer day. Will look for this one in the future.

3.98/5 rDev +9.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: bright, clear golden color; serious carbonation; a one finger frothy head that slowly settled and kept about 1/4 of it's body; good lacing
Smell: grassy or hay-like
Taste: Again, grassy and hay-like; slight lemon; quite mild
Mouthfeel: light, clean, and crisp; nice carbonation, but not too ticklish; very enjoyable; almost no stringency
Overall: Exactly what I would expect from a golden ale. I typically like a more robust beer, but sometimes I want something light and crisp. This is what I'm looking for at those times. This would be perfect on a warm summer day after mowing the lawn or just hanging out on the porch with friends.
