4/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow with lots of bubbles. Solid two finger white head with good retention and a light amount of lacing.

Smell: Grains and caramel malts with a solid presence of earthy, floral hops. Hints of citrus and lemon peel. Aroma is fairly light overall, but the floral hops are very noticeable.

Taste: A bready flavor up front from the grains and malts is followed by a decent bitter bite from the floral, herbal like hops. Hints of lemon zest. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Feels light in the body but the floral hop flavor is high. Very smooth.

Overall: A very tasty and interesting brew. It has a surprisingly high hop presence for a lighter bodied beer. Its like a light version of a pale ale. A good option for summer when you want an easy drinking beer with a good hop presence. This bottle was a few weeks past its recommended date yet it still tastes fresh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
