Maybe this is straight from the files of "you had to be there," but...I came home from work on a hot summer day to find my two beautiful daughters (ages 18 mo & 5 years) playing in the wading pool. I poured this beer, sat down in a lawn chair, and put my feet right in the water.
It poured a brilliant golden, summery yellow with a snow-white head that left a delicate, long-lasting lacing high up in the glass, long after the surface of the beer lowered a bit.
It was lemoney when it hit my pallette, followed by hints of pine resin and fresh bean sprouts. Emminently drinkable. A refreshing, welcome summer beer.

Seeking out various local summery brews, and this is an obvious one I haven't had. Tasted 29 July 2013, reviewed from notes.
Pours medium-pale golden yellow, glass-clear. One finger of almost-white head, plenty of visible carbonation. Okay retention, little lacing.
Smell is very grainy, like mid-summer wheat and corn, but pleasantly crisp. A toasty/buttery aroma near the end is a little odd, not fitting in with the other elements.
Taste is just kinda meh. Bland, with just a touch of hop zing. Grainy again, just not much going on. Not flavorless, but not flavorful either.
Feel is okay. Medium-bodied, more buoyant than I want it to be, and with rather low carbonation. Could be better.
One of those beers that I can drink, but that I don't feel any need or real desire to. Refreshing enough, though the toasty/buttery character and the mouthfeel bring it down a notch.
