Served On-Tap

A — Pours a somewhat hazy, lemony yellow hue into the glass, there is a white colored head that leaves some adequate lacing behind it.

S — Smell is a bit sweet, though there is a nice dry and crisp hop tone underneath to balance it out.

T — Tastes lightly grainy and malty, as well as some nice noble hop character to add some bitterness.

M — Light-Medium bodied, there is a nice enough carbonation level here.

O — OK overall, a bit sweet but really not out of line.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear dark yellow color with just a thin cap of white head that had decent retention and very good lacing.

The aroma was a nice mix of grainy malts and gentle even hops. On the tongue, the hops were a bit sharper and more focused, and still complemented the malt very well.

The body was nicely full and smooth, although perhaps a bit sticky. Drinkability was excellent, the beer went down smoothly and easily. Overall, a very nice take on the style, worth trying if you see it.
