This beer pours a clear blonde color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma has some nice funky barnyard notes: hay, horse blanket, mustiness. The taste has the same funkiness, but it is much weaker. So weak, in fact, that it greatly detracts from my enjoyment of this beer. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Overall, this is an underwhelming beer that I will not be drinking again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint.

A: Hazy, light golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, white head. Settles slowly. Continually rising effervescence visible. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Yeast, freshly cut grass, and lemon zest.

T: Sourdough bread, with a bit of lemon citrus, seltzer water, and coriander.

M: Light body, earthy bitterness in the finish.

D: Session.... read the label.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Foamy head and plenty of lacing. Yeasty and grassy with a little citrus in the nose. Pungent bready flavor accentuated with citrus and coriander. A bit of a carbonated water character. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Poured into snifter from 12 oz bottle

A - poured a hazy golden color, minimal head and lacing

S - got a little breadiness to go with a slight piney hop aroma. Also lemon and a hay-like aroma come through

T - still get some lemon zest taste and straw-like flavor that follow the nose. Nice hop balance, not bitter at all. A little maltiness as well

M - very light and well balanced. Slight crispness to it. Definitely one of those for a hot summer day after a day working in the yard.

O - not typically my beer style of choice but can't exactly knock back a few Imperial stouts after yardwork. As far as what I wanted out of this beer, it pretty much hit the mark. Would definitely have again.
