Sampled at the brewery. Review from notes.

A - Pale straw (blonde, perhaps?) color. Pale white head is tight, but leaves little lace behind.

S - Light fruits & honey. Some grassy hops. Not a whole lot of depth.

T - Sweet light fruits (pear, peach, nectarine) and honey first. A touch of toasted grain and grassy hops.

M - Very light, crisp and dry. Quick finish.

D - Very high. This is a session beer for sure.

Not a bad offering. Brewed with intent, this is a beer to have 2 or 3 of on a hot day. I'd like a bit more depth, but overall, not bad.

One liter growler from the brewery in Riverside on Saturday for twelve dollars, consumed last night, poured into a Stone pint glass

A-Light pale yellow color, one inch creamy white head, not much retention, no lacing
S-Vanilla, bread, grass, cereal, faint caramel, skunkiness, and a hint of flowery hops
T-Begins with bread and has some grass too, light citrus and grains in the middle, light malt in the finish and a hint of lemon, more character than most of their other beers, nicely balanced
M-Crisp, slightly dry, and bready mouthfeel, medium bodied, lots of carbonation, taste does not last
D-Drank this whole growler and could have drank more, very light on the stomach, goes down easy and is crisp, refreshing and would make a nice beer for the summer out in the super hot IE

More flavor than their pale ale and IPA somehow, would question if they gave me the right beers or not if I had not watched them pour each one of them, would drink this if I went back and actually not bad for a usually boring style, worth trying
