Best by September 2012:
Into my nonic:
A: slightly hazy, pale yet golden yellow colored body that gives a small white one finger head, lasts less than twenty seconds. Barely any lacing is left, perhaps just a bit of spottiness here and there. No carbonation is rising.
S: based around some grassy yet faint fruitiness combined with some light pale malts. There is some slight bready/biscuity maltiness but it is only smelled after the beer warms.
T: very light with a slight pale maltiness, a fair amount of grassiness comes in with floral tones
M: extremely light that leads to a slightly dry finish. Nothing is harsh on the tongue.
O: It is decent for what it is. It is nothing spectacular, but nothing that is bad.

12oz bottle from the Summer mix pack. Pours a semi translucent dark straw color with no head. Virtually no lacing. Aromas of wheat, lemon, malts and a bit floral. The taste is mostly wheat along with some lemon in the background. Some floral and orange notes as well. A bit of a soapy finish. Light mouthfeel. Overall, its an ok summer beer.

Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow color with a one finger white foam head that quickly settlers into a thin ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.
Slight earthy aroma was grassy, spiky hops, light fruit, faint light fruit and pale malt. Really bland and not much going on except for the hops which aren't that inviting. Slightly bready with biscuity malt.
Light bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite up front that lingers over the yeast, light fruit and pale malt notes into a slightly dry finish. Subtle dry bitterness with some grassy, floral hops countered by light fruit sweetness and subtle biscuit flavored malt. Not overly complex but it's crisp and refreshing with some nice hop flavor. A nice beer on this 100+ degree day.
