look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

No more than one finger white froth of head over light golden body, very bubbly. Nose is slightly buttery, and it's hard to pull much else out. Flavor deals very little to the palate. Grainy and a minor smack of fresh grass if I focus hard enough. Good carbonation, but what's that without some flavor?

Overall, the neutral flavor and mouthfeel make this for an easy beverage to down immediately in 90+ degree heat. Other than that, I wouldn't reach for this again.

Notes are from 5/28

Crystal clear and bright, this yellow-gold brew looks pretty much the way I expect a "summer ale" to look. It develops a soft white head with moderation in both retention and lacing, a layer of foam left a few minutes in laying down sturdy spotting and light patching mixed.
Aroma and flavor display a light note of grains and a pale, sweet fruitiness as the main components. There's a biscuit touch as well, and the very light hops addition is mildly grassy and herbal. The flavor follows the aroma except that it fades at the end and only a weird mingling of dryness, herb and overripe banana reaches the finish, and briefly.
It's light-bodied, as it should be, with a softer crispness that, while constant, gives preference to smoothness. A little leaf dries it out, but it never leaves the area between semi-dry and semi-sweet.

Serving type: on-tap
