Notes/Commercial Description:
Stop and smell the petals Pistil is a summer beer unlike any other, brewed with a combination of dandelion petals, Pale and Acidulated malts, flaked oats, and Apollo and Northern Brewer hops that results in a one-of-a-kind beer with a slightly sour acidity and a smooth malt body. Perfect for taking down deep thirst.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

The aroma is hoppy with grassy, soapy, and citrusy hops and it has a yeasty bread element. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The taste is bitter and pretty much just hops. The palate is average. Overall it's not what I expected it's a bitter IPA type of beer but it's not bad.

Aroma-Faintly floral, pale malt
Taste-Pale malt, lemongrass. Light-bodied and refreshing but lacking any real substance,. like a dandelion puff in the wind.
