Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass. Pours a lightly cloudy medium amber with a very nice white head of foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and nice lacing. Nose of light honey, subtle wheat, and light grain notes. Flavors follow the nose with soft wheat and subtle honey on all sides followed with a moderate grain note on the background, and a hint of banana. Good mouthfeel with medium carbonation and a light wheat aftertaste. Good mower brew.

Glowing golden orange in color. Cloudy in appearance. Simple grain malt and not much else. Not getting much wheat or carbonation. Just so bland. Might be good on a hot day.

Aroma orange, malt, hay, faint floral, yeast, & bubble gum. Taste slighty sweet citrus, yeast, hint of tartness & honey, slight bitterness.

Poured into a pint glass. Bottle.

3.75 A: Well hazed yellow-orange-brown color. Two and a half fingers of frothy foamy off-white head. Retention is good and lots of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Big floral, piney hops with grapefruit and a touch of generic underneath. Neutral wheat maltiness. Definitely a hop forward brew we have here.

3.25 T: Again hop forward, but with a low bitterness. Floral hop flavor dominates with just a touch of pine, earth, and grapefruit underneath. Yeasty breadiness.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and a touch chewy. Good enough here.

3.25 D: Fairly standard hop forward APWA. Nice drink, but nothing special.
