The beer comes in a clear pale gold.

The aroma offers juicy apricot, candied peach rings, stone fruit lip gloss.

The flavor hits upfront with that candy stone fruit flavor, peach and nectarine. The beer moves quickly on the palate with light biscuity sweetness in the middle onto a pleasant finish with hints more of that stone fruit lingering. The mouthfeel is medium, but the flavor ends up a bit watery.

12 oz bottle. Pours Pale straw, with a small, short lived, white head. Nose is of bready malt and hint of grassy hops. Body is light and slightly crisp. Some bready malt, grassy hops and fruity notes combine on the palate. Finish is short, semi-sweet. Not much better than macros.
