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.

Poured into a thin tulip.
A: A bubbly and cloudy body is pale yellow in color and is topped off by a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Certainly active enough if not very beautiful.
S: Strong scents of grain and hay give this beer a very funky and earthy aroma. The hearty malts are complimented by a pop of hops and some faint but bright citrus. A little too funky, but fine nonetheless.
T: Malty and earthy, sure. But this taste is too faint and still too funky. The citrus is more of an implied taste than an actual characteristic. Some pepper and spice is a nice flavor, but this is too faint to be considered anything better than a simple, drinkable beer.
M: A little too heavy, but I like the carbonation, and this is a pretty appropriate feel.
O: Not much to say. It's faint, a little too funky, but pretty drinkable and unoffensive, if not quite pleasant.

3.66/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that slowly faded away, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with hints of spicy hops and bready malts.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the malty flavors are a bit stronger and there is also a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied (but neither thin nor watery) and clean on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This really seems to be a nice selection for a "lawnmower" beer if you're looking for something that's very easy to drink but isn't an adjunct or a light lager.

Straw yellow in color with lively carbonation. Just a bit of foam on top. Pale malt in the aroma. The mouthfeel is pretty crisp and smooth. The taste is pretty refreshing and simple. Just a hint of corn and almost like a bit of grapefruit. Pretty satisfying as a refresher.
