Enjoyed in a shaker pint.
Honey-colored and so hazy as to be opaque. One finger of frothy white head recedes shortly, leaving a sticky, egg foam-like top layer and lace.
A nice hit of grassy hops noticeable at first. Floral, maybe lavender. Citrus pith. A nice, bright blend actually. Not much malt.
Same grassy citrus in the flavor at first, followed closely by crackers and tangy apricot. A little caramel as well.
High, pinching carbonation; sugary, medium body. Becomes lighter as silky fizz breaks out. Crisp.
Not bad. Bright, drinkable. Tastes like spring.
Serving type: on-tap
