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.

Pours a clear straw yellow color with a fizzy white head that leads little to no lacing.

Smells of grain and some lemon.

Tastes of the grainy malts with some floral and lemon hops. Grainy malts lead off with some sweetness. This leads into some lemon and grass hops along with some floral notes. Finishes fairly clean.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid session beer with a simple profile.

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.
