12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
Thin lacing with a golden filtered clarity. Forced orange and lemon nose on a thin graininess. Crisp, easy to get to as the body is pretty thin. Orange and lemon water with an addition of grain, seriously ... it tastes like a glass of cold carbonated water that a fresh wedge of orange and lemon where put in a few hours ago. The grain is too thin to really call out. Hops, sure something could be there but the beer does not even need to be balanced ... not much to take care of. Dry finish with some citric remains.
Weak sauce ... I expected a bit more out of this one. Not much to it at all and the addition of citrus fails IMO. They would have been better off sticking to their Rising Moon Spring Ale and simply tweaking as I said.

Sort of a pale to medium gold color, this beer does shine brightly though it shows a potential thinness beyond simply being light in body. There's lots of bubbling carbonation rising from the bottom, and it's needed as a foamy head struggles to surface. It does, though, and holds its own better than I'd think. Some reasonably decent spotting is also managed.
The aroma is very light, offering pale malts with some light citrus zest and sweetness both of orange and lemon. There's a hint of rind in there, though I get more the impression of watered-down juice mixed into dusty malts. I've smelled worse in a Blonde; more than anything, it's simply weak.
In the flavor, the weakness comes out to more ill effect than the aroma. It ultimately ends up making this beer taste more like a lightly flavored seltzer water than anything. Dusty malts actually go a touch astringent, it's got some corn husk, and it just goes way too thin and lacking in flavor.
It feels like seltzer water, too, and the best I can say is that at least it's crisp. Even that tingle falls off in the end.
