Served on tap at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier in a beautiful HF pint glass that despite my best offers to the bartender could not walk out with.

Nice burnt copper appearance with the classic smells of a great Pale Ale... like a liquid slice of Vermont in a cup. Very clean hoppy, citrus taste just in time for summer. This is the beer I'll crave after mowing the lawn on a hot July afternoon. Crispy and light to the very last drop. A song I hope to sing again!

Another fantastic brew from Shaun and friends... what else have you come to expect?

Song of Spring pours a hazy, yellow/orange with a moderate, creamy head on top. The foam leaves behind clumps and spots of lace on the glass as it disappears.

The aroma is pleasant and has notes of grass, pine, lemon grass and orange.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is very soft and smooth. Light to moderate carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced between the malty sweetness and hop bitterness. It begins mildly sweet with a little bubblegum and caramel mixed in. Soon, mild hop flavors of pine and lemon/orange citrus appear. It finishes with some grass notes and mild bitterness. Once gone the citrus and a little sweetness lingers on the palate.

Finally, a pale ale that's not a hoppy IPA. This is what a pale ale should be, a nice balance between malt and hops. The beer is very drinkable. I only wish I had easier access to it so I could have it more often.

another 750ml growly

It's a hazed copper ale with a solid quilt of soapy, dusty whites. Smells like tea, malt, hints of grapefruit, lots of english influence on this one, some grapefruit. Flavor is malt, biscuit, a little orange pekoe, some english yeast character. Pretty simple and devoid of the classic APA flavors. Medium bodied with hi carb and a wet finish. Although this absolutely misses the mark on American Pale Ale, this is a really nice assertive ESB almost. I like this beer, but would never recommend it as an APA (everything graded as such, except overall score)

It was last spring when I had this, so I don't want to put a lot of detail in here and be wrong about it, but I can tell you that this collaboration (Hill Farmstead and Grassroots; both in Greensboro, VT) is one of my all time favorites; this is one of the most under-rated beers I've seen on here. Bear in mind I have access to all of Hill Farmstead's offerings as well as the top and several of the top beers in the world, and this one sticks in my mind as one of my all time favorites. Very drinkable and sessionable, and has that amazing floral character that is so distinctly Hill Farmstead.
