3.6/5 rDev +2.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A- Clear straw yellow body with a small white head that quickly dissipates to a foam cap.
A- Light sweet malt aroma. Light earthy hops.
T- Light sweet malt, with a slight breadiness to it. Hops were very light a very faint bitterness towards the end. Sortof lemony.
M- Medium-light body and moderate-light carbonation. I think the carbonation could have been kicked up a notch.
D- A very enjoyable light beer for the horrid summers in Missouri.

bottled about 7 weeks ago; should be pretty fresh.
pours a straw color, perhaps a touch lighter than I expected. Many lines of bubbles stream their way towards the surface, but to little to keep the head from receding to a thin ring in a couple minutes. Slight cloudiness and certainly well short of bright or vibrant.
DMS is more than the background note I'd like here. Otherwise pale malt aromas are pretty fleeting and noble hops even more so. No diacetyl.
A bit sweet - not out of style. Pale malt and a general graininess are here. Faint bittering fails to balance the malts - again not out of style. Just wish the malt flavors were a little more robust. Call it 3.75 and maybe I'll eventually bump it up to "4" on flavor.
Carbonation is pretty high, body medium. Quite crisp, pretty clean, no astringency.
Mostly per style, and the areas where it differs are not fatal flaws. reasonably enjoyable beverage, a nice alternative as a lawnmower beer, but I'd like to see a bit more malt flavor here.
tried a fresh bottle again today. Most of this is the same, but there's overwhelming diacetyl here too now. Obtrusive in the nose, obtrusive in the flavor, and leaves a really slick body on the mouthfeel. Bumped all scores down; disappointed in this version.
