look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce can

Pours a clear straw gold, inch of fine white head dissipates to a sudsy lacing.

Smells of honey, grassy malts, and a bit of citrus.

Tastes is of light honey and citrus sweetness over mild dry grassy malts and a hint of fruity hop finish.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A nice light sessionable ale with some nice flavor and body. Very easy to like and enjoy, especially on a warm sunny day.

Serving type: can

3/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear golden color with an impressive head; nice retention and a few strands of lace are left behind

Smell: Bready, salty and grainy with a hint of sulfur

Taste: Bready, underneath, but the herbal, grainy and sulfuric tones take over quickly; the finish is harsh and grainy and there is a salty residual flavor

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: There aren't many beers out there that totally turn me off so this was a surprise and not a pleasant one

Serving type: bottle
