Pale gold colour with a thin white head.

Thin lace on the glass.

Buttery carmel nose. Slightly sweet.

Smooth mouthfeel.

Balanced flavours of malt and hops ending with a peppery finish.

A refreshing summer ale while playing bocci. Good burger beer.

A- Very pale yellow clear body with a fluffy white head that dissipates to a foam cap. Leaves a nice lacing.

A- Sweet interestingly fruity aroma with a pleasant bitterness.

T- Sweet bitterness up front. There is a pleasant fruity sweetness that I can't identify. Bitterness throughout and stays with a nice fruity aftertaste.

M- Light body and moderate to high carbonation.

D- Very thirst quenching beer. Great for a hot day after a long bike ride.

Pours a very pale yellow color with a thick, fluffy, off white head.

Smells of light lemon and grass with some yeast in the background followed by a slight funkiness.

The taste is crisp and refreshing with lemon and unripened fruit followed by pale malt and a slight breadiness.

It feels light, with the perfect amount of carbonation and a tasty finish, perfect for a hot day.

This is a nice beer and I wouldn't have any problem throwing back a few, it's light but the abv isn't too light so that's good too.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. The beer pours clear light golden with a thin, white head and lots of visible tiny bubbles rising in the glass. The aroma is of bready malt with some fruit. I get some grassiness as well. The taste follows the nose. There's some nice breadiness from the malt profile and some mild citrus and tart fruit flavors. I also get some of that grassiness. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and slightly dry. The drinkability is solid. This is a decent beer.
