Slightly doughy, mild neutral yeast that moves to soft spice. A little fruit.
Very clear. Gold. Fizzy head that is off white. Some lacing
Pale malt forward with the classic NB toasty, biscuit taste. Very soft yeast flavors. Touch of drying.
Good body for how small a beer it is. Quite soft in both carbonation and general feel. Ample carbonation.
KInda' boring really.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of floral hops, pine, slight earthy malt, sweet malt, and a hint of sugar. Fits the style of a Belgian Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, pale malt, floral hops, lemon, and a hint of pepper. Overall, decent appearance, the aroma and body are highlighted by the lemon/pepper notes, and the blend is good.

Pours a pale yellow with a fizzy head. Nose is sweet, lemon and grassy, citrus hops mixed in with some cereal malts. Taste starts off with citrus zestiness, which moves on to a cereal malt flavor. A lemony, grassy hop flavor finishes off the palate. Mouth is creamy and smooth. Overall, this is a refreshing summer beer, just as it is supposed to be.
