Pours a finger of head on a clear golden body.
The aroma is mostly honey and some dry grain.
The taste has a mild bitter start, honey sweetness and rye spice in the middle, finishes with a mild bitter note.
The texture is light and fizzy.
Quite nice.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, rye, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid hop presence that makes this one tasty and easy to drink.

From a tall boy can.
This pours a pale straw-gold in the glass with decent, if short lasting, foam.
There’s a pleasing aroma that showcases the malt, with its gentle rye notes giving an almost “warm bread”-like hint to the pleasant hop kiss. I found it equally pleasing and enjoyable as I sipped, with the bready rye and touch of hops playing nice together. More easy-going than complex and challenging, and all sorts of enjoyable. For what it was and what it set out to do, I liked it.
