Appearance is hazy golden color with a two finger fluffy white head.
Aroma is spices, banana, yeast, and cucumber.
Flavor is banana, cucumber, bitterness throughout. Not complex but good.
Mouthfeel is medium to thin, carbonation is big and crisp.
Extremely refreshing beer but the flavors aren't big or complex.
Not a bad summer beer but I wouldn't seek it out.
I'm thankful I got to try this.

On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange body. Big white head. Lots of lacing. Thick collar and great retention.

Smell - Lots of cucumber. Almost pickly. A bit of esters and some grain.

Taste - Still lots of cucumber. Much more grainy and some slightly sweet pale malt. Light cucumber is the lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Very drinkable. Medium light body.

Overall - It's refreshing and the cucumber flavor is pretty much all there is here. If that's your thing, it's good. I rather enjoy it.
