Took awhile for this to get on tap due to some distro issues. Finally had it a couple of weeks after I was initially told about it...how'd it measure up?
Served on tap into my huge mug club mug of death.
A- pours a cloudy, honey colored shade of gold with a one finger white head. Laces nicely.
S- getting a lot of lemonish hops. Unique for something by Lancaster...a pretty strong scent! I likey.
T- you get a huge bite of bitterness from the lemons and first, and then some sweetness. Tastes like...summer.
M- feel is good. Nothing outstanding.
D- oh hells yes this is drinkable! Low ABV, nice tasting, plus, its sold in cans so you can bring it on the beach with you. Total summer beer, and one of the better ones I've had. Kudos to LBC for churning this one out...much better than the Rare Rooster I'm used to from them in the summer.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a light golden color with a one finger of pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is very light overall with just some hints of a biscuit nature as well as a little bit of a grassy and citrus smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and slightly grainy taste mixed with some lemon citrus flavors. As the taste advances it gains a bit more graininess with the lemon getting a bit stronger as well. Some lighter hop flavors of a grassy and floral nature as well as a decent amount of grapefruit show up mid taste, bittering the flavor a bit A light tangerine sweetness joins the lemon and malty flavor at the end, leaving a slightly grainy and more sour/bitter citrus flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are quite appropriate for the style and match well the citrus and grainy flavors of the brew, making for a more refreshing drink overall.
Overall – A rather decent kolsh, that is fairly refreshing and crisp, but that is nothing super out of the ordinary.

12oz can poured into pint
Clear golden straw yellow pour with a frothy cap of bone white head. Fades out into a collar of film with little lacing. Bright grassy hops and a dash of citrus in the nose with some pilsen malts. Hops brush the tongue up front with biscuit malts and lemon peel. Mild backbone, snap of spice, refreshing and crisp on the tongue. Clean finish, lighter body, decent carbonation.
High value, excellent drinkability, refreshing during the warmer summer days. We brought some of these to recent bbqs and beach parties where they really hit the spot. Plus it's $30 for a case, which is ridiculously cheap for a craft beer case in Center City Phila.
