The beer comes in a gently hazy golden yellow color. A bright color, very much like Peeper.

The aroma has herbal, grassy hops, with some fresh lemon. Not very vibrant, but still refreshing and light and inviting.

The flavor follows with lots of grassy, floral notes mostly, and then a gentle bit of lemon. There's some breadiness to clean the beer up, but still a very light body beer. The drying is of floral and herbal notes.

The mouthfeel is a bit watery as this had issues with carbonation. Very flat for a beer of the style.

A refreshing and decent pale ale. Akin to Peeper, but not quite there.

Served in the brewery tasting room in a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazed golden-yellow coloring with a filmy, white, low profile head. Nose of citrus and herbal hops. Flavors are very dry, with a grassy overtone on a bready and citrus backbone. The aftertaste is dry and grassy, with a lemony highlight. Dry, effervescent finish. Very tasty. I really hope this one gets bottled/distributed. Amazingly refreshing and easy to drink.
