Pouring a deeper, slightly cloudy gold, it has a short-lasting fizzy white head. A miniscule amount hangs on and leaves some lacing. The aroma is almost non-existent with a slight funky earthy hops and malt sweetness to it. The taste is little more complex than the aroma. There is a light hint more robust malt on the finish I can't quite identify. The body is a little watery and thin. It's definitely an easy drinker but it just hasn't have much oomph behind it in the flavor department.

A: crystal clear; golden in color; less than a 1 finger white head that receded quickly; no lacing;

S: citra, citra; citra, with some light malt in the background;

T; the grain and malt are much more prevalent here, with the citra peeking through;

M: light bodied; light carbonation (the keg kicked on the next pour, so that may have affected this);

O: refreshing and well balance, although I would have preferred more citra flavor;

Appearance- Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a very clear rich golden color with a white head that dissipates quickly.

Smell- Very faint smell. Have to really try to get the smell of citrus and mainly lemon. Not a bad smell just not overwhelming or anything that stands out.

Taste- Light flavor with some bready malts and some light citrus hops. Very balanced and delightfully refreshing.

Mouthfeel- Light and thin. Very refreshing with a lot of great carbonation that just adds to the carbonation.

Overall- Very refreshing summer beer. Perfect for a hot day. Nothing over the top but a very well balanced beer that does its job perfectly.

Poured from a single bottle into a pint glass. 7/4

Pours translucent dirty gold with a ring of white foam. Malty chalky nose, a little citrus. Taste is a subtle pale, almost helles. Backed by some lemon citrus. Very mild and even. Flavorful summer brew, balanced and not too sweet. Good for the fourth.
