Pours clear, pale straw yellow with a fine white head of soft foam that fell off rocky to a cap and ring. left lots of nice lace. Some yeast floating on top. Nose is honest and clean. Orange and lemon citrus, dank. malty grain and spice. A little pepper and floral. Slightly sweet pilsner scent. Really appetizing and continues to excite the nose as it warms with a musty quality and a little pine. Taste is light bread, malt forward and loses most of the fruit. It does give a quick but small hop bite, a little hay and earth. It finishes with pine and a little oily bitter; but not much, and wet not dry. There’s cracker in the aftertaste.

This beer had the best nose but in the drink it felt somewhat bland and muddled. It was very mild. Simple and not in a bad way. Light and drinkable.

Clear and straw in color, this beer is light in complexion, moderately carbonated, and is topped with a nice white head. The aroma is clean...grass and grain...not much fruit, but a moderate hop scent...peppery, but quiet. Crisp and a tad bitter. Not really sweet, but there is a flavor of malt. Medium in body...mor substantial than expected. Nicely drinkable.
