12oz bottle poured into a pint

A: Clear, pale straw. Nice head leaves behind an even cap and modest lacing.

S: Big citrus hops. Some grass. Almost smells like a cider

T: Lots of honey and a touch of sweet biscuity malt. Slight green bitterness gives way to a clean finish. More honey in the aftertaste. A little corn.

M: Lots of bubbles. Pleasing but almost too much

O: Very drinkable pilsner.
