This beer is a re-visit for me as i'd only tried it once over 20 years ago while living in California. Served it up today in a red solo cup after outside temps are soaring into the low 90 * f. here in Florida.

A: Pours a nice beautiful honey amber color with a really respectable cloud white barrista frothy head.

S: Smells of biscuit yeast and fresh hay.

T: Refreshingly wet taste with moderate bitterness from earthy Northwestern hops, loam flavors criss-cross the tongue like a lawn tractor mowing down a checkerboard lawn.

M: Starts wet. Plenty of bubbly. Medium bitter middle, ends wet. No discernible alcohol notes (well balanced).

O: Solid beer. Great for hops lovers who are looking for a lower alcohol refreshing summer brew for those swamp ass days of summer.
