A- a slightly cloudy goldenrod with orange hints. Nice creamy egg shell colored head. A little bit of lacing.
S- Lemon zest, noble hops, and some pilsner malts.
T- Some lemon zest, a restrained noble hop presence, some wheat malt, that transitions into a strangely interesting and quite pleasant grainy sweetness. Lemon zest lingers
M- spot on carbonation, and the wheat malts lend a certain creaminess to the brew.
O- I didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. I like this quite a bit more than Sam Summer Ale, likely due to the more pilsner like qualities. Certainly glad this will be around even in non-craft beer friendly establishments through the spring.
Serving type: on-tap
