Very pleasantly suprised with this one!
Bottle into a pint glass. Quickly dissappearing white head that left a nice lacey ring behind. Color was as advertised - blond and very clear with very small, tight carbonation bubbles.
The smell caught me right away - great pine / citrus aroma with just enough malt to make it great. Very fresh smelling !
Taste was smooth with just the right amount of bite that lingered for a few seconds but was not at all overwhelming. Light bodied and went down easy.
This one is exactly what the doctor ordered for summertime quaffing. Light, piney and easy to enjoy!

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).
A: Clear honey-golden with short cap of fuzzy off-white head with a skimpy bit of lace at the top of the glass.
S: Grassy and fruity citrus aroma, very nice fresh hops aroma with a little bit of lemon and floral character as well. Malt notes are small but not missing. No real yeast character as it should be.
T: A really crisp, clean beer, although the flavor is good through mid drink but misses on the bitterness (a little too bitter) and the hoppy finish (a little underhopped and really under dry-hopped) that the aromas promise. Maltiness is inobtrusive but supports the hops well with some crackery malt character.
M: Clean and crisp as the style should be with medium to medium-high carbonation and light body.
O: Not a beer I would order all that often, but at the right price point, I could see picking this up occasionally. I could see myself brewing a slightly hoppier version myself for sure, but there is no big flaw in this beer. Solid and enjoyable.

Pours a bright clear and clean straw yellow with a own finger bright white head.
Smells of some grassy malty hay notes with a touch of mustiness. There's some bready sweetness in there.
Taste starts off with an herbal peppery subtle hop note mixed with a clean caramelized brown sugar malty sweetness. Touch of burnt caramel on the end.
Mouthfeel is fairly high in carbonation which helps give this beer it's initial bite feeling on the tongue. Fairly light with a touch of viscosity to give it somewhat of a thicker character than soda.
Overall, this is an ok beer but a good poolside offering. I would have this again at a BBQ on a hot day but otherwise it doesn't have the best blend of flavors for my taste. Still it's above an average beer by far.
