LOOK: Clear golden color, soapy white head.

SMELL: Orange peel, wheat, sweet malt.

TASTE: Light lemony flavors, floral, biscuity. Some wheat type flavor with a small graininess. Bitterness is tame but balancing and has an earthy pungency.

FEEL: Light to medium bodied, well carbonated. Has a buttery, palate coating yeast finish.

OVERALL: An agreeable session ale from Brooklyn. A good choice for a summer brew.

Serving type: on-tap
