Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, crystal clear, honey-yellow coloring with a ton of carbonation throughout and a tall, foamy, frothy, bright white head. Aromas of toasted grains, floral highlights, buttered bread, cut grass, and subtle hints of honey and cracker. Flavors are grassy up front, with hints of evergreen and honey, on a cracker backbone. Effervesced and light body, with a roasted and toasted character towards the end of the palate. The aftertaste is more of the toasty and grainy characteristics, with hints of sweetness. The finish is frothy and effervesced, with a lingering grassy and tangy sweet character. Different take on the style, and definitely refreshing on a hot day.
