4.05/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear straw yellow with a white fluffy head that dissipates at an average rate, ensuring decent lacing.

Aromas of pils malts, light floral and grassy hops, and a touch of lemon zest. A very subtle hint of spice lingers in the background.

Light bready malts, floral and grass hops with a pilsner dryness that are balanced extremely well. The lingering skunk isn't overpowering, but is played just right.

Mouthfeel is slightly oily, thin to medium, with tiny bubble carbonation that adds some crispness to the brew.

A very solid session beer, especially in the summer months.

Serving type: can
