reviewed from my notes from the VBF

Poured from bottle at the Brooklyn booth at the VBF

Pours a clear golden color no noticable head to speak of.
very slight lemon zest smell weak hop/malty aroma.
unfortunatly the beer was warmer than it should have been (recommend keeping the open bottle on ice while at the table) nothing jumps out at you here very slight lemon flavor.
not too much carbonation here light dry taste
not something I would look for there are definitly better summer ales out there

Serving type: bottle
