Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours super cloudy yellow with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of lemon zest, bready pale malts, fruity tropical hops, damp grass and some natural sweetness. Packs a decent punch.

T - Starts off with a mix of chewy pale malts and the tropical fruitiness slowly being joined by the grass, lemon zest and the light sweetness. Finish is still a little chewy with some zesty hop bitterness, not lingering for very long.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel that is pretty easy to drink. Decent balance, very little if any booze present.

O - Pretty similar to the lawnmower beer just a bit stronger all around. Not as easy drinking as the other one but I would have no trouble drinking a few of these on a hot day.

Review notes from ~3 months ago. Growler poured into a matching pizza boy can glass. The brew appears clouded yellow with a big white froth that fades leaving patches of lace.

The smell is zesty with lemon and hoppy citrus. A bit grassy and pithy with orange rind/zest addition. A fine smelling brew.

The taste is similar with a dry pellet hop feel. Some citrus grass and pithy pulp of lemon meets grapefruit.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. A very easy drinking hybrid of styles that doesnt go too far one way or the other.
