A: pours a hazy straw gold into a "Perfect Pint" with a good two fingers of white frothy head the settles slowly and leaves some spotty lacing.
S: it gives a good citrus hoppy smell with big grassy notes and a solid light malt background.
T: a lot like the nose it flourishes with grassy, citrus and pine like hop notes toned down slightly by that crisp apple sweetness and light sweet malt tone.
MF: awesome effervescence; good light, refreshing body and smooth flavors.
D. This is a great beer for the warmer spring days. Its good for the hopheads who want there hops but need an ABV break. I'd grab a six pack, have them on the hammock trail and that would be all she wrote. On the downside the grass notes can be overwhelming at first then (I could imagine) again if you had a couple of these.
Serving type: on-tap
