look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear light to medium yellow in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation quickly rising from the bottom of the glass and hints of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense fizzy white head that reduces to a large patch of medium thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly heavier than moderate flavors of bready malts with light flavors of grassy hops in the finish. Light amounts of bitterness which lingers slightly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Very easy to drink, very refreshing, and tasty - I could see myself picking this up a lot more frequently once the weather gets warms (great beer for when I am out on the porch manning the grill).
