Beautiful light gold colored ale. Lustrous, white, foamy head towers over the beer and gently recedes to a smooth layer of cream. Laces very well.
Beautiful aroma of fresh cut flowers, and grass. Bright, young, green, and yeasty. Lots of citrus character, mostly lemon, mingled in as well. This has to be the best smelling beer I have ever experienced.
Flavor is not as good as the aroma but still exceptional. Mild, bready malt character. Sweetness of sugar cane and apple fits very well. Hops are fresh with a grassy character and hint at bitterness without overpowering. Deep, complex and very tasty. Alcohol cannot be detected making it very dangerous.
Just heavy enough to call it medium bodied, but barely. Lively carbonation. Finish is crisp, smooth and clean. Perfect feel.
Wow! I am so glad when beers like this come along and remind me why I venture out and sample new brews. Such wonderfully complex flavors yet a light feel that is easy to drink. A true masterpiece in brewing.
