3.74/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Pours a cloudy golden color topped by a thin white head and gobs of carbonation. Minimum lacing and head retention is awful.

Aroma:
Leaves a bit to be desired but hints of honey and slight cloves and citrus. It's earthy and quite welcoming.

Taste:
Sourdough with some citrus, clove and a bit of corn.

Mouthfeel:
This is a very light-bodied beer that is incredibly smooth and heavily carbonated. It's fantastic and refreshing!

Overall:
A great beer - It's not complex by any stretch of the imagination, however, it is super easy to drink and insanely refreshing!

Serving type: bottle
