On tap at the Ballast Point Tasting Room and Kitchen.

Clear yellow-gold with a very good, semi-durable white head. Very good lacing

Feel: medium body; High-medium carbonation.

Smell: Nice mix of hops that dominate the malts, but there is a detectable brady malt base.

Taste: appropriate for style, although it has a lightfruitiness from, I guess, American hops.

O: a worthy American version of the style.

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Served on tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and grassy hops. There are some light amounts of spices in the aroma as well.

T: The beer has a bready malt body with moderate amounts of grassy hop flavors. There is a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness. Some hints of lemon citrus as well a light spice presence.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O: A very enjoyable beer for the summer - crisp and refreshing. This is a enjoyable beer and I could easily have a couple of these in a session.
