Pours a clear lighter golden color. Head is white and very frothy. It overflowed when the bartender poured it.
The nose is light, but there's a slight hop presence.
Taste a bit more hoppy up front than I expected. A bit of a bitter aftertaste. Not the best on the backside.
Feel is on the lighter side.
Overall a so so beer. Nothing that I can highly recommend.

This beer pours yellow with a large head. The aroma features light biscuit malts, lemon peel, pepper, lime zest, lemon flesh, and floral tones. The flavor is light and malt driven, with light biscuity malt, lime zest, rose, and pepper. The mouthfeel is very light and fizzy. Overall this is a decent lighter beer, but I wish it were a bit bolder, and maybe a toucher lighter in feel.

Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of orange, pine and toasted caramel. It was sweet at citrusy with a caramel sweetness.

Pours a clear gold with a thin head. Smells of straw, spicy hops, and lemon. Not super complex, but pleasant. The taste has a floral hop profile, backed up nicely by biscuit malt flavor. Extremely clean, and it tastes more like a pilsner than anything. Feel is medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. Goes down easy, taste isn't particularly complex, but as advertised, this is a solid summer beer. Shame it's rainy today.

Strong lemon aroma with some bread notes. Flavor profile is also dominated by lemon, to the point that I'm surprised it's all from Sorachi Ace hops. There is a biscuit and bread malt backing, tastes like wheat as well, but I don't know of any being used. Finish is both tart and sweet. Light bodied but very creamy. Good, lemony thirst quencher.
