Hazy yellow pour. Aroma of grains amd lime. Lemonlime bitterness up front grassy, cereal, a bit buttery. Very sessionable. Wheat and citrus fruit prominent in aroma and taste.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. They poured this into a tulip. The appearance was a glossy burnt yellow to hazy blonde color. Messy sticky lacing around the sides of the glass. The aroma takes on sweet grassy sticky hops with a nice underlying bitterness all about. Citrus rind. Then a nice crisp sweet malt. The flavor brings it all together bittersweet. Nice underlying bittersweet citrus rind. Sly grassy to citrus sweet aftertaste with a crisp bittersweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides low enough. Overall, really nice blonde ale, that’s what I thought it was. I’d come back to.
