Pours a slightly hazed gold. Slight citrus nose with lemon and orange character. Flavor is slightly sweet with a hopped edge. Also seems to be a bit of a bitter edge, though still leaves everything pleasant and smooth. Feel is strong with carbonation. Very drinkable. Wouldn't go down as a favorite, but worth trying and overall pretty good.

Part of a sampler at the brewery - it has a 5.5% ABV, and poured a light transparent yellow-golden color with a small head. The smell was mainly of hops and the taste was mainly bitter and some taste of barley. I found it very similar to their Wheat Ale.

Delivered to table with a one finger large bubble white head. Appearance is clear burnished gold. Looks appetizing. Aroma is herbal/floral. Taste is a beautiful clean balance of big biscuity malt, even mildy nutty, with floral and slight grapefruit hops. Mouthfeel is soft with the slight grapefruit bite. Drinkability is outstanding.

Sampled on-tap at the café in downtown (as opposed to South-Side) while home for the summer. My pint was delivered to my table a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white had. The aroma was of citrus hops and some hints of green grass. The flavors were crisp and refreshing, classic sharp hops with some bitterness and some dry barley. The body was light/medium but it was bolstered by very active carbonation which helped fill it out a little. Nothing great a but a nice hometown brew.
