2.89/5  rDev -17.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Serving Type: Can
Glassware: Pint glass
Appearance: Translucent, hazy virtually no head which quickly went to a thin bit of lacing. Straw colored.
Smell: Musty and crackery, yeast forward. Some presence of citrusy hops.
Taste: Biscuit like with mild noble hop presence. Faint traces of apricot, clover honey and hay. Definitely some earthy/musty funk going on with that.
Mouthfeel: Thin, crisp and dry. Adequate attenuation but a lingering sense of grittiness that detracts from the experience..

Nice golden, semi-hazy, bright yellow with quite nice head. Sweet and pungent aroma with a nice hint of spicy hop zing. Nice sweet and light malty flavor with a good light finish of spicy noble hops. Goes down with extreme smoothness, a light and refreshing beer.

Packaging: 12 oz. can

Purchased: 6-pack from Midtown, Nashville

Straw-colored hazy beer with a nice sized white head. Good retention and a fair lace is left behind. Smells have a tartness to them, with lemon/citrus character. Flavors also have lemon for a tart taste. Also has what seems like a salty character. The finish is dry with lemon aftertaste.

Overall a pleasant beer that would go great on a hot beach in the summertime.
