look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Kind of a bright yellow appearance, slightly cloudy, tiny and thin white bubbles amass at the top in a small .25" kind of way on the top of the beer. Aroma was crisp, spring like, effervescent.

Taste, maybe Noble hops, high carbonation, really light body, miniscule tartness and a tiny amount of bitterness. I thought it was enjoyable in the summertime, I dunno how much I'd be down for this one in cold weather. Whatever the yeast presence brings, its light, dry and refreshing. Never a heavy aftertaste or flavor component that lingers. Dry grass, mild and tame lemon notes.

Perfect keep your edge stuff for disc golf, barbecues, tailgates etc. . .

A: pour is a yellowosh-gold, pours about 1/2 fingers worth of head formation that is very carbonated and thus dissipates quickly. carbonation is easily seen and the brew is mildly transparent.

S: smells of honey, lemon, hops, big apricot fruitiness, and slight grain.

A: more graininess here than in the nose but its not overwhelming. the fruitiness, mainly the apricots, as well as the hops help create more balance in this brew.

M: very light on the tongue, high carbonation, goes down very quickly. doesn't leave much on the palate.

O: i prefer more complex brews that have a bigger body. i was given this by a family member so I am very grateful to have tried it. It would be a nice brew for anyone first starting out in the micro/craft brew world. It provides a nice touch of simplicity, yet at the same time adds a few characters to help the palate grow.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Really nice lacing over a golden body with the a tiny tiny bit of haze. The look of it is great. Nice lemony grassy taste and smell. This is a very refreshing summer ale. I'm having it in the wet fall right now, and its still almost perfect, but in the hot sun this one would be spot on.
