Rich golden color with excellent clarity. A quarter inch of eggshell white head with Brussels lacing. Nice piney hop aroma intertwines well with a light club cracker malt note. The taste is initially hop forward with the pine and some citrus flavor but it gradually turns into the light malt biscuity flavor. The mouth is light,crisp with a gentle grittiness to the texture.

Pours a straw golden yellow, very clean, no sediment, looks almost like a lager with some very airy carbonation.

Subdued citrus notes, subtle malt sweetness, and slight pine/herbal aromas, very mild.

Citrusy and piney hops sit on top of a very laid back malt backbone, nothing really shines.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, dry, refreshing.

Overall, I was excited to find this, but nothing really stood out nor made this something I'd try to hunt down again. Just a crisp, refreshing, mild pale ale.

Didn't like it. Tasted like tonic water.

Pretty similar to Sierra Nevada. Not worth the extra $

Mild. Could probably be my favorite lawnmower beer.
