A: Light, pale faintly hazy yellow-orange, white fizzly head. Weak loose carbonation.

S: Sweet wheat, a bit of hay.

T: Bready, a bit of lemon. Something warming. Quick exit.

M: Actually, nicely creamy, but still refreshing.

O: Tasty, but too much in limbo between refreshment and a hearty brew to really nail a category. Happy to have tried it.

on tap at acorn over there in the source, it looks like these guys distribute to colorado now, or at least they are all over that building. itd be cool, because they make some really good beers, this one included, and while its real simple as far as style and flavor profile, its awfully well done. bright golden in color, crystal clear and with a nice head. this is definitely underrated here for sure. a nose of grassy bittering hops, maybe saaz, i like that a lot. its quite hoppy really for a golden ale, and in the absence of any real yeast character, the hops really shine in the finish. really bright beer, massive carbonation and a really clean finish despite the hoppiness. medium bodied and very dry. its a perfect example of the style, and deserving of its decoration. interesting that the five vulture is so far out and this one is so simple, both ends of the spectrum covered in my experience with these guys. i dug this a lot, great with my lamb sandwich. i hope they stick around.
