A great bellowing head was produced as I poured. Inside the light straw colored beer was a massive storm of carbonation,working hard to keep the tall head afloat. The body had just a slight haze to ir's clarity.
Aroma was dry bready malts and sutle spicy hops.
Taste was good malty and hoppy with hops having a nice spicy assertiveness.
Finishes dry and lightly bitter. Drinks refreshingly smooth and prickly over the palate. It's clean in flavor and finishes semi bitter.
A good well made beer perfect for summer activities.

Pours a pale straw color with good clarity and strong effervescence

Smell starts as a bready pilsner and then comes through with some sort of vague citrusy sourness

Taste is a big improvement on the smell. A sharp sweetness and clean biscuity malts. Nice.

Mouthfeel is prickly with carbonation yet extremely quaffable

Overall it's very solid yet leave some more to be desired.
