Slacking indeed Jared. Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Poured a crystal clear golden straw hue with a half finger white foamy head that fades to leave a soapy blanket with light side lacing.

S - Aromas of light grassy hops and light sweet malts. There's some light faint citrus as well.

T - Good bready yeasty grains with more grassy hops resulting in a slight bitter finish. Very light and crisp.

M - Mouthfeel is a little thin but slightly sharp on the end. Super drinkable and sessionable, goes down very easily.

O - Overall this is not a mind blowing beer from wormtown but it is still a good beer. Super sessionable and goes down easy. Good with bar food.

Tap at Peppercorns. Again somehow got this in before Rudzud... you must be slacking Matt.

Light fizzy head fades quickly with light lacing over hazy golden tan colored beer.

Nose has just a touch of malt with a nice floral, grassy hop addition, light spicy hops as well, a very nice fresh hop addition.

Taste starts with nice hops again, little spicy and floral, a bit grassy and earthy, with a decent bitterness. Light grainy toasty pilsner malts come through on the back end, with a mild sweetness. It finishes dry with a big spicy hop bite, lingering grassy and spicy hops that stay for a while.

Mouth is med bodied, good carb.

Overall nice, tasty pale with nice big hoppy bite, nice spicy floral grassy hops, and just enough malty base to bring out the hops.
