Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a sudsy off white 2" head which recedes leaving mild lacing. Clear golden color with moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: lightly toasted barley malt, yeasty bread dough, definite citrus hop note.
Mouthfeel: light and fizzy with a drying finish.
Flavor: sweet barley malt, lemon, citrus rind and white bread crust.
Overall: a pleasant and easy drinking brew. Although a spring seasonal, I could see having this on a hot summer day. Quite refreshing.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours out a hazy gold with a bone white head. Smells of crackery grains, light leafy, floral hops, and fruity esters. Flavor is big on crackery grainy malts, and fruity esters, with hop character taking a backseat. Solid bitterness, but I'd prefer a bit more hop presence, although there are touches of flowers and grass. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Solid, easy-going ale for the warmer months. Love the low abv.
