Omg that is delicious. Thick, straw yellow, opaque, sour as hell. Great ginger root and lemon grass, lemonade, a little salty. Phenomenal.

Bottle shared thanks to bstyle. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Comes out a bright, hazy yellow orange, with a finger of fizzy white head that dissipates rapidly. No lacing, and body is quite still.

Smell: Ginger right up front, followed by a really nice lemon rind. Some bready yeast, and a slight lactic smell.

Taste: Again, the ginger and lemon rind really meld. A nice clean lactic tartness, minimal funk, and some bready yeast. Just an overall clean beer.

Mouthfeel: This beer is exceptionally drinkable. Would be perfect on a summer day (or any other time). Despite the lack of carb on the body, still a nice carb on the tongue, especially when mixed with the tartness.

Overall: This beer was a pleasure to drink. Clean, simple combination of some new ingredients. I really look forward to what Night Shift offers in the future.

Thin, quickly-dissapating head. Vigorous carbonation. Cloudy yellow appearance.

Great summer sour brew. Ginger, ginger, ginger up front. Strong sour lemon finish with a hint of sweet citrus. Doesn't cause a huge pucker but a nice long citric acid burn. Refreshing and highly drinkable.

This is a wonderful summer beer that would work perfectly with burgers and potato salad. Would compliment a spicy Thai meal perfectly.

Great job Night Shift!
