I poured this into a glass, it has gold color body witj a small head to it. The smell has a light fruit, bread aroma to it. The taste has a light malt flavor and some grassy/hay notes to it also. I also get a little hop on the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear old gold colro with a medium sized white head that dissipates fairly quickly with slight lacing.

Smell is of light fruits and white bread, a bit of floral hops.

Tastes as it smells with a bit of sweet honey and citrus added. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth, a slight amount of lingering bitterness in the back end.

Overall, an easy drinker best suited for the warmer weather.

Appearance has a golden yellow color supporting a thin head leaving nil lace. Smell is grainy, malty with a slight zip of hops. Taste is again grainy with light malt and light hop. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Not an overly impressive beer has a off bitter bite in the end.
