look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- Very pale yellow clear body with a fluffy white head that dissipates to a foam cap. Leaves a nice lacing.

A- Sweet interestingly fruity aroma with a pleasant bitterness.

T- Sweet bitterness up front. There is a pleasant fruity sweetness that I can't identify. Bitterness throughout and stays with a nice fruity aftertaste.

M- Light body and moderate to high carbonation.

D- Very thirst quenching beer. Great for a hot day after a long bike ride.

Pours a very pale yellow color with a thick, fluffy, off white head.

Smells of light lemon and grass with some yeast in the background followed by a slight funkiness.

The taste is crisp and refreshing with lemon and unripened fruit followed by pale malt and a slight breadiness.

It feels light, with the perfect amount of carbonation and a tasty finish, perfect for a hot day.

This is a nice beer and I wouldn't have any problem throwing back a few, it's light but the abv isn't too light so that's good too.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. The beer pours clear light golden with a thin, white head and lots of visible tiny bubbles rising in the glass. The aroma is of bready malt with some fruit. I get some grassiness as well. The taste follows the nose. There's some nice breadiness from the malt profile and some mild citrus and tart fruit flavors. I also get some of that grassiness. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and slightly dry. The drinkability is solid. This is a decent beer.

A: Pale golden with a marshmallow fluff, bright white head. Reviewing it with the style and the occasion they call for in mind, it couldn't look any better. Total summer poolside beer look.

S: Sour bready yeast, lemon zest, hay, fresh cut grass.

T: A lot like the nose, except lemon is the dominating flavor. Some background noise of what I would describe as "dad beer"--what we all probably drank in college but more like the pleasant thing that you fondly remember your dad giving you a sip of as a kid (if this at all makes sense to you).

M: Refreshing is the word for this one. Clean, lively. Just what you want on a summer day.

O: Really, really good summer beer. Obviously, this isn't a complex IPA with 10 kinds of hops and caramel malts working the balance or a huge imperial stout aged in maple bourbon barrels for a year--but it IS just what it advertises: a refreshing summer beer. Surprised it gets kind of low marks, with that purpose in mind.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a very clear pale yellow. Carbonation visible for a while after pouring. Nice white, foamy head that leaves a good amount of lacing after each sip.

S: Smell of pale malts with floral and herbal notes.

T: Decent pal malt flavor followed by citrus and fruit notes. Very slight bitterness that comes and goes quickly at the end of a sip. Aftertaste is fruity/citrusy.
.
M: Light bodied with decent carbonation. Finishes very smooth.

O: Overall a great beer for hot weather. So glad I grabbed some of this in ATL before coming back to Tampa. It will be great during the next few hot weekends working out in the yard and garage.
