Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, Cultivator celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. This spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread and delicate floral hops. #1 of 4 in our Hop Cycle seasonal series.

I thought this was a very good beer.
The appearance was quite striking with a crisp and clear amber gold color. The head was tall and tight and left lot of lacing. Well carb'd.
Mostly in the nose was grainy malts.
the taste was malty sweet with some warming alcohol notes. Subtle and soft notes of floral hops add some depth.
It finishes clean and dry. An excellent beer.

As some others have said you get a lot of pilsner flavor, with some citrus as well, mostly lemon to me. Solid beer, pretty refreshing for something that has little hop profile.

Pours a pale Amber with a slight white head that leaves some lacing.

Smells of malt, yeast, bread backed by citrus and floral hops.

Taste of fresh baked bread with yeasty undertones up front. Lively carbonation keeps flavors moving. It has a bitter lemon citrus hop middle rounding out with a biscuity malt mouth feel and ends dry with a floral hop bite.
