On tap at brewery:
The glass holds a baked straw liquid, one that looks like it should be clear with its light color, but actually has a uniform haze that is near opaque. The pour does not allow me to tell the ease of head production, but the frothy white ring with medium bubbles trapped within it lasts and there is some early lacing.

Nose took some time to open, and even then is a tad light. Crackery malts and a light lemon-leaning citrus lean with a dry-grass to hay-like accent.

Taste starts with the expected clean malt, which has a bit more dry bread to it than expected. A lively carbonation, but of micro-bubbbles that keep it from being too aggressive. Hay and grain husk strewn across the ground gets a turn towards a more herbal bitterness with some dry cut grass. Definitely a dry finish, with a light numbness from the carbonation.

A nice, very dry light beer that I wouldn’t be surprised has a fair to low IBU, but one that has those bitter units all coming to bear. Bitter in the end, but in an enticing way.

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale light yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head.
S: Moderate aromas of floral and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and also has hints of biscuit malts along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. O: This beer is rather easy to drink and makes for a nice bitter if you like grassy hops.
