Pours a clear golden color with white lacing and head that lingers. It has a slightly citrus hop/floral aroma...very mild smell.
This is a unique twist on the style, although I'm not sure that it's a complete home run. The floral addition gives a somewhat mild tasting beer something interesting and provides depth. The taste is quite dry and not very malty, the hops and floral notes dominate with a splash of lemon.
Thin to medium body with the dry finish would make this a nice summer easy drinker.
Overall, this is not my favorite style, however, SA seems to have done a good job of spicing it up. Almost too light for my tastes though.
