Reviewing this beer on a warm summer day in early June. First note picked up is strong smell of Noble hops with slight malt taste in the backround, head is light and not much carbonation. Small amount of lacing in regular pint glass. Very similar to euro style or Czech style pilsner lagers. Mouthfeel is light but with good flavor. overall a good summer brew best enjoyed on very hot days (90+) not something to go searching for but I would buy again.
