Appearance: Pale yellow, clear, with a small white head, so-so retention and modest lace.

Aroma: Light graininess, faint grassy hops, lemon, sweet malt.

Taste: Thin and slightly lemony, touch of sweeter malty caramel flavor, reserved citrus and grassy hoppiness mostly noticeable in the finish. Subtle underlying bitterness. A little bland overall.

Mouthfeel: On the thinner side with good carbonation. Crisp and clean, but there’s something a little lacking here that keeps it from being truly quenching.

Overall: An easy drinking but ultimately forgettable blonde.

Top five summer beers in my opinion. A very full-flavored yet easy-drinking crisp summer brew. A perfect companion to a hot summer day BBQ on a rooftop in New York City. I love when a brewery finds a winning recipe and sticks with it. There is no need to fix what ain't broken.

A – Light golden honey. Creamy, tightly bubbled head. Nice lace and great retention.

S – Fairly light. Light malt, touch of sour pear and tart apple. Washed lemons. Fresh grass.

T – Soft lemon acidity paves the way for a grassy center and a pine and peppery finish.

M – Medium light body. Ok carbonation. Light dryness on the backend.

O – Starts bright and ends relatively clean.

Pours a pure gold with no head. Absolutely no smell. It's about now I'm concerned about beer quality...it's late summer and the bar seems to be pushing this beer hard. Taste is light crystal malt, a little wheat, and very mild hop character. Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and refreshing.

Overall this is a rather weak beer. Forgettable all around.

On tap in a Pint glass

A - Pale amber to dark blond with an inviting and somewhat creamy 1 in head, little activity

S - Sweet sugary barley, slightly nutty, some citrus from the hops

T - Super balanced, lightly roasted malt gives a great complexity to an otherwise lighter variety, hops are light but very enjoyable and delicate

M - So so smooth, has a nice clean finish and is super session able

O - Kind of upset I discovered this at the end of the summer, really enjoyed this one
