You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

Poured into a 12-oz mug. It is very pale gold, slightly cloudy, with a small, airy head. The nose is pretty faint, but offers a light sweet malt scent with some floral hops. Fortunately, there's a lot more interest in the taste, with a good mix of floral, citrusy hop flavor and a clean maltiness. Light, effervescent body.

Not an exciting beer, and yet it is indeed highly drinkable and makes an excellent session beer. I could easily put back several of these on a hot afternoon, I think.

Clear golden colored ale with a medium sized snow white colored head.

Smells of hoppy northwestern type hops with a strong pine scent. Little bit of a honey malt scent.

Starts out dry and hoppy. Medium level of bitterness. Taste is more willow tree and aspirin than pine.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall kind of a forgettable beer.

Clear straw color with one finger of head that had good retention before settling to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Light aroma that sort of reminded me of a cross between a pilsner and an APA. I smell soda crackers, pepper, citrus, herbs, and flowers.

More than just the typical boring blond ale. Nice hop flavors without going overboard for a light ale. Notes of tropical fruit, black pepper, herbs, and lemon. Malt offers a light bready, cracker type of flavor.

Light body and nicely carbonated. Lively without being harsh makes combined with the light body makes this extremely accessible and drinkable.

Nice light, flavorful beer that has good hop qualities without much bitterness.
