Can. Gold color with white froth and absolutely excellent lacing. Smell is mild, yeasty. Taste is mild up front then sugar sweet in the middle and finishes with a nice pils-style crisp bitterness. Silky mouthfeel, very drinkable. Overall, slightly above average and an easy choice for a drinking session.

A: crystal clear; bright yellow colored; 1 finger creamy, ivory head that receded slowly to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: a little muted; grassy hops; a little biscuit;

T: well balanced; a little sweet; grassy notes from the hops as there, but also some pale malts; tastes and looks more like a pilsner; almost no bitterness;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: I expect the hops to be a little more forward in an APA; that said, a easy drinking beer;

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a white fizzy head. The smell was a lot of hops and citrus but with a slightly sweet hint at the end with almost a vanilla scent. The taste was nice with a lot of hops in the beginning with a nice bite which mellowed out into a semi-sweet finish. Not bad but overall nothing too amazing either.
