3.9/5 rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a 20 oz. beer mug.
A - One of the best pours I've done yet yields a perfect pillow of head that reaches 1.5 inches or so right to the brim of the glass, a crystal clear, very pale amber brew sitting below it. The head dissipates quick and the color is almost TOO light, but when it first filled the glass, it looked picturesque.
S - Non-offensive light skunk aroma backed up by lots of grain and a hint of hay, grass, and lavender.
T - There's not a whole lot to the taste, but it's got a crisp floral upfront taste with fresh grain to back it up, also carrying a slightly bitter hoppy taste. Just enough bite to lend some zip to the otherwise very light taste.
M - Holds up well with a light yet somewhat substantial body, and fine yet fizzy carbonation. Delicate is the operative word.
D - Let's see:
Modest ABV? Check.
Pleasant yet not overpowering flavor? Check.
Not overpoweringly bitter? Check.
I'd say this is a session brew.
Overall: An excellent summer choice if your craving a tall glass of refreshing brew.

3.48/5 rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Extremely clean look. Transparent very pale yellow golden color. Finger and a half of head on the pour. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.
Smell: Aromas of straw and hay hit the nose first. Sweet soft malt backbone is picked up but takes a back seat. Light tropical fruits compliment the straw tones very well.
Taste: Easy going biscuity malt front greets the drinker. That sweetness carries over into the body which adds some fruit and very mild bitterness. Bready finish that leaves a light pleasant sweetness behind.
Mouthfeel: Some lingering malt tones on the finish. Super easy drinking.
Overall: A simple yet well crafted beer. Biscuity malt is prevalent with some fruitiness to add a bit of complexity. Really easy beer to sit back, relax, and just enjoy.
