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.
