A-Poured a rich gold with ok head, nice lacing.
S-Sweet malt with floral notes, faint orange, light American hops.
T-Hops really come straight at you. Starts out with nice balance of slightly sweet toasted malt and puckery American hops that emerge through the palate and finish. Finish is clean with aftertaste of grapefruit.
M-Nice dryness and bitterness provide good contrast to sweet bouquet. Good carbonation and light-medium body.
D-Has more hoppy character than the style description would indicate, but I really enjoyed this one. Very drinkable.

Full notes taken at our campground in Sioux Falls, SD. Week-long camping review dump ahead.

A- Semi hazy golden body poured from a 12oz to a goblet. White head forms to a finger with a foamy-fizzy texture and fair retention. Small ring and spotty lace result from the cap.

S- Bready yeast with some fruity esters, pale cracked grains, cereal and hops that are citrus spicy and herbal. Has a slight lemony citrus fell to me.

T- Sessionable Golden Ale feel with fair amount of hops, cereal, biscuit and light sweet grains. Floral, spicy and herbal hops with light lemon citrus in the finish.

MF- Light bodied but a creamy chewy texture especially for the style and such low ABV. Carbonation fairly high and works nicely with the flavors present and it all ends with tiny bitters.

Sessionable pale golden ale with a balance of hops and malts. Chewy mouthfeel was a nice bonus considering the style.
