Got a keg of this one on at home and it is not lasting long. The beer pours a light straw color. There is absolutely no haze in this one. A finger of white head falls to a brief cover over the brew, leaving a decent amount of sticky lace as it falls. This one fits right with what I expect for the style. The nose has some sweat fermenting dough qualities to it, with a light and crisp noble hop playing behind it. Things are pretty mellow in the aroma. The flavor brings more prevalence to the herbal noble hop sitting over the slightly sweet bready quality of the malt. It finishes with a crisp bitterness that hangs on beyond the final swallow of the beer. The mouthfeel is on the lighter end of moderate but with a moderate carbonation of very fine bubbles that really makes it feel light. The drinkability of this beer is second to none. At 4.5%, it is a true session beer. All aspects of the brew are mellow, but not boring at all. This is a style that needs to be made by more breweries. I might be putting in an order for another 50L of this one sooner than later.
