Taste: crisp with a grainy mouthfeel, bright hopped and yeast bread notes, slight bitter but lighter finish. fresh hops, spiced bread nose. Golden hue, clear, tall white head, nice lattice of lace. Medium body. Good for a ball game. 25 IBUs

12 oz can, best-by date of 06/29/21 stamped on bottom, poured into a pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden color with a half-finger head that receded to a thin film.

S: Light fruity sweetness with just a hint of mild hops.

T: Smooth doughy malt sweetness up front. Hop bitterness is a little more intense than the nose would suggest. Certainly adds complexity, but perhaps undercuts its goal of being a summer crusher just a bit.

F: Medium bodied, well-carbonated, smooth finish.

O: A well-balanced ballpark beer. Tony LaRussa would approve.
