Pale gold with a thin head and a slight haze. Restrained aroma....light background of hops. Crisp bitterness. Dry. Clean and drinkable with a firm mouthfeel. Respectable but not overly remarkable.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down and left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of bready and cracker malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is rather malty, without much in the way of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style.

12oz. bottle poured into a tumber glass.

A- a pale amber/gold, with a nice white head, lacing could be better.

S- best part of the beer. some very light crackery malts paired with a floral hop with light citrus hints.

T- very light. Cracky malts, a very light hint of sweetness with a decent bitterness from the floral/earthy hops. Very slight citrus rind.

M- dryer that you would think. Light bodied, decent carbonation.

O- it's a summer session ale, in every sense.
