Crystal clear golden hue but foamy white head. Pretty bland nose.

Very kolsch like. Light by consistent and smooth creamy body. Toasted buttery malts, light underlying hop bitterness to balance. Drinks like water. Light but flavors are good all around, could easily suck a lot of these Down. Boring but pretty good.

A: A glass consuming pearl white head is a four fingers deep upon the pour, soapy, porous, with a good rate of retention. Soapy lashes adore the glass for lacing. Within a strong, and steady rise of carbonation. Lemon peel coloring.

S: Light aroma of musky hay, and dry grains.

T: Sweet oranges, sweetly toasted grains, lemonade and lime. There is some fruitiness, sweet canned pears and honey dew. There is a nice grain base, dry, hay, sweet like, with some wheat crackers and a bit of wet citrus and straw coming on the finish. Decent sharp flavor aspect.

M: Good vibrations of dancing carbonation on the tongue. Light bodied.

O: Overall easy drinking, summer treat, sweet and lemony gentle dry grain finish.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a big white head. Tons of bubbles are seen flowing up from the bottle of the glass while the head fades quite rapidly to leave only a very light level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heavy of some toasted malt and a grainy wheat smell. With these aromas are some bready notes mixed with a light caramel sweetness and lemon citrus hop smell.

Taste – The taste starts with a bready and grainy wheat base. As the taste advances it gets more tart with some lemon and also starts to become somewhat off as some stale wheat hits the mouth. Toward the end the taste, the flavors sour more with floral and more citrus hop coming to the tongue and when combined with a somewhat cardboardy taste, it all leaves a rather unpleasant taste to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner to medium side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. Fairly good for the style and makes it more drinkable.

Overall – The feel, aroma and look are all fairly nice, but the taste is just off pretty much from the start. Not a beer I would recommend.
