12 oz, single bottle purchased from Gary's in Madison for $1.89...
Pours a light, straw-colored, amber, tawny appearance with a minimal head that soon receded and left hardly any lacing, with ample carbonation visible...
Faint aroma of banana, citrus, and apple..
Taste strongly complements all smells present, and was crisp, clear, and refreshing, with a slight pepper-bite to it...
Good mouthfeel, crisp and clean, and a really good level of drinkability to match make this an ideal warm-weather beer...
Recommended...

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

Clear golden color with a thick head with medium retention and leaving some laces.
Light aroma of herbal and citrus hops and white bread.
Similarly, flavor of herbal and citrus hops with notes of green apples, lemon, bready malt, milt tartness and a distant white pepper. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light smooth body with low carbonation.
This is actually a light APA with some wheat that further smooths the brew. Very refreshing and extremely drinkable. It fits well its purpose.

A- Dark golden body from a 12oz bottle to a goblet. Creamy white head forms to about two fingers high with nice retention. Head eventually falls to a foamy ring and cloud on the brew and lace rings start at the top after each sip. Thick lacing drizzles down from the top.

S- Not exactly the strongest of aromas but some pleasant things happening. A mix of yeast bread, wheat grains, grassy spicy hops and light malts combines in a smooth smell. Some pale fruity esters as well.

T- Opens up with a mix of lemon citrus, apple fruit esters and a floral grassy hoppiness. A wheaty, biscuit maltiness balances this out in about an equal strength. Some clove phenol type note must be from the yeast. Fresh yeast bread hints throughout.

MF- Light end body that really exhibits a creamy texture with any agitation. High carbonation level and a light bitterness lingers on the palate.

A sneaky but fresh grassy floral hoppy feel balanced well by a fairly strong yeast and nice malty backbone. It all comes together pretty well in a refreshing, balanced brew.
