eh, had higher hopes for this one. pours mostly clear even though its said to be unfiltered, really light yellow in color with a very nice white head. the nose is pretty hoppy, lemony and light, with a lighter grain makeup as well, maybe some wheat in here, and plenty of pale and crystal malt. the flavor is more balanced than the nose, and therefore the hops don't really get big until the finish, which is clean and fresh, brisk, like early spring itself. it also has a minerally character, elemental, not metallic, but off just a bit. its super easy drinking, light and interesting enough, with really bright carbonation and a less than medium body. it does get a little filling after a few though, which is sort of odd, but this is a decent choice for the spring box. if I reach into the box blind and grab one of these, im not disappointed, although I probably wont seek this out again.
