A great spring time style beer, smells great looks great and taste great. Bottled for the first time in 2012 wish they had bottled it in 2013 but is currently at the pub and worth a growler fill for sure. Not my favorite style of beer but done well enough that I like it.

Pours a yellow-straw color, cloudy and translucent with a wispy white head that hangs around for a few seconds before it fizzles away forever. Some spot lacing left from the white ring that settles on the circumference of the glass. Aroma is mellow but pleasing to the senses - noticeable graininess and strong yeast in the form of sweet bread. Musty and floral hops, along with some faint citrus and lemon zest, and maybe some other fruits, erring on the "peel" and "rind" side of things. Overall a pretty low-key aroma, soft and delicate, but good nonetheless.
Has a "lager-like" taste to it, both from the crispy effect it has on the palate as well as the clean flavor I'm getting from the yeast. Mild grains, sweet bready malt, light citrus zest, white grape skins, and a moderately floral and musky hop presence. Light bodied and on the heavier side with carbonation - easily drinkable from start to finish. Aftertaste is full of light yeast and grains, with a bit of dying fruit skins and Noble-like hops. This one went down the gullet pretty quickly.
Super-drinkable and light, although this suffers a bit from being just a tad uninteresting by the time you reach the second half of the beer. Nice example of the style and overall very enjoyable for what it is, no doubt.
