Tried on tap at the local bar.

Pours a hazy, cloudy golden color.

Smells of light citrus fruit and some herbal tones. The taste follows with lemon zest, hops, and hints of grain and malts as it warms up.

Very clean and crisp drinking. Carbonation is great. Feels refreshing.

Overall a good solid beer. Very drinkable and I can see me getting this more at lunch with a 4% abv
