Notes/Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Before I get into this review I want to start by saying I REALLY wanted to like this beer. I've had low alcohol session beers that I have enjoyed before. My review is not from "not getting" this beer.

App- pours a one finger white head that disappears immediately. Pale straw color, slightly hazy.

Smell- fruity yeast (lemon peel, overripe pears) bubblegum, touch of spice. Not discerning much hop character. Slight vegetal aroma too (DMS?) almost corn like.

Taste- Fruity yeast (same notes as in aroma) and.... That's about it. A touch of malt-sweetness and a light cracker like character. I get that DMS vegetal thing at the finish. Very light and dull/muted characters. Not really picking out any hop character or really any hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- thin and slightly watery. High carbonation slightly burns (think like a coca cola out of the can). Instead of filling the beer out, the high carbonation comes off as abrasive.

Overall- I don't hate this beer. From reading the description I was expecting something with some noticeable but not domineering hop character (like pilsner urquell on a good day). Instead everything in the beer is rather dull and muted.
