Pours a brilliant, pale yellow color that is crowned with a thin and fluffy, pure white head. Chill haze is present with a decent amount of lacing and gobs of carbonation.

While the aroma leaves a lot to be desired, it's welcoming. And sweet. Honey is dominant here, but sweet corn and lemon zest break through. It's simple but pleasant.

Confirms what the nose picks up on - it's sweet. Sweet corn and malt take over the front end and is balanced by some rather grassy hops at the tail end. Again, leaves a lot to be desired but is enjoyable.

Plenty of fizzing is present in this light-bodied beer. A tad creamy and finishes dry. Easy to drink, easy to enjoy.

While I'm not blown away by it, I find it to be a nice summer beer that is both refreshing and enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Light, slightly hazed gold color. Large, light, tight, foamy, bubbly, bright white head. Nice retention and a nice lacing.

S - Sweet grainy malt and some corn aroma dominate the nose. Touch of honey sweetness. Minimal grassy hop aroma.

T - Very similar to the nose. Dominated by sweet cereal grains, touches of corn. Somewhat sweet but a little on the bland side. A touch more grassy hop flavors than the nose suggested.

M - Light body, average carbonation. Spritzy, lively feel with a touch of a drying finish.

D - Easy to drink beer that is a little on the bland side for me. Lacked a significant hop presence or an orchard fruit presence I was hoping for.

Notes: Nothing offensive but nothing exciting either. I could see people that aren't into craft beer drinking this if you took them to the brewpub. Not my favorite from them, and nothing worth going after but it's not bad.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy golden color, thick white froth of a head that slowly recedes. Light foamy lacing.

Aroma: Lemongrass, bready grains, malts.

Taste: Really nice lemongrass coats over some grains and malts, almost has a minty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied.

Overall: Nice grassy, citrus tones. Refreshing, probably should have tried this in summer instead of October.
