A clean and crisp American take on the style. This specific example has much more restrained hops than other American counterparts. A delicate balance between sweetness and bitterness. A pleasure on a warm day.

On tap at Dive Bar in Manhattan.

I was expecting this to be hazy and it wasn't, which I appreciate.

It's really true to style, from appearance, to nose, to flavor. Crisp, refreshing and light and really distinguished by a floral, lightly sweet honey finish that lingers. I like that little flourish, however HF achieved it.
