Poured from a 12oz bottle, bottled on 3.21.14.

A very pale yellow color in the glass, aroma is citrusy mixed with minerals. A nice hoppy edge to a pils as the flavor really stands out with the traditional graininess but with loads of hops. Very easy to drink, perfect summer ale!

Consumed March 27th, 2014 at Blue Palms Brewhouse, Hollywood CA.

Appearance: beer is an extremely pale light gold. One finger white head quickly becomes splotchy lacing.

Aroma is grassy and grainy.

Flavor is malt forward: cereal (corn and rice?). Slight amount of citrus, then a thin bitterness. Very simple flavor profile.

Moderately dry.

Lacking in floral or spicy hop notes, this beer did not satisfy. Have had from a bottle as well and did not enjoy then, either. Will not have this one again.
