4.16/5 rDev +14.3%
Appearance: nice golden color, hazy in a good way, white one-finger head
Smell: Grass, bread, slight citrusy hops smell
Taste: Warmth of bread, biscuit, with a slight hops overtone
Mouthfeel: Very clean, crisp, and not heavy at all
Overall: I really enjoy this beer. Very summery, but could be enjoyed in the fall. I wouldn't pick this beer for a cold winter's day by the fireplace, but definitely an enjoyable brew.

A: pours a nice golden color that is murky, but does have some transparency. it creates a nice a nice 1-2 fingers worth of head formation with rather decent lacing. head is slightly off white in color
S: nice crispy bready/biscuit right up front with a nice malt backbone and subtle hops lying in the background. i also pick up on a just a slight touch of orange peel. i find the balance quite enjoyable.
T: similar to the nose... biscuits, touch of graininess, slight bitterness from the hops, and a nice citrus note to complement the flavors. not overly complex, but decently well balanced. slight creaminess in the finish
M: medium bodied brew (a bit thicker than I was expecting). leaves a nice dryness on the palate along with some bitter hops.
O: i think this beer is highly sessionable and quite nice to be honest. as previously mentioned, its not overly complex and has a nice flavor profile.
