3.15/5  rDev -15.1%

Presentation: 12 oz. can. served in a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance: White, foamy, two finger head that remains for a while. It has a cloudy bright yellow color.

Smell: It has a faint, floral hop aroma that is noticeable but not overwhelming.

Taste: Very balanced, with nothing really standing out. There's some grain, bread and malt notes. There's also the citrus hop flavor that while subdued, gives this beer it's distinct refreshing character.

Mouthfeel: It has body but it feels light and refreshing and goes down smooth. Medium-high carbonation with a clean finish.

Overall: A perfect substitute to your adjunct lager of choice. It's fresh, with a good aroma, taste and character; yet it remains very easy to drink with nothing overwhelming going on in the nose or palate. Add it to your list of must-have beers for hot weather.
