despite what the folks here say, this beer is wonderful. label must have changed this year, and maybe with it the recipe, because the critiques i read here do not seem at all valid to me. maybe i just got a really fresh one, i dont know, but i liked it a lot. pours clear golden color with a lacey and sticky white head with perfect retention. the smell is fresh hops, floral and oily, very little bitterness presents itelf. malt bill is light, pale and crystal malts, barely a crutch for the hops to lean on. flavor lines up with the nose, hoppy all the way through, but more it a light grassy to fruity way, rather than bitter at all. clean and bright in the finish, sessionable forever. this may be a little light for some american pale drinkers, but i found its fresh pep and light malt complex just right for a sunday afternoon of football. light light body, but big on flavor. strong but not overkill on the carbonation, and overall an impressive introduction to central waters brewing for me. wish i had more than one of these.
