Light beer. Not typical of most pale ales. Very pleasant citrus note at the end. Not a clean finish but still refreshing...

2015. Very poor example of a fresh hop ale. Maybe the crop was bad or they didn't get much, but the beer was mainly a showcase of the English malts and not the hops.

On tap at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin.

Let me start by saying, if this could be a year round regular beer from Karbach, it would immediately be my go to fridge beer.. it is awesome.

Super easy to drink... plenty of hops, but not overbearing for a guy like me who likes hops but doesn't love hop bitterness all over the finish.

Such a great beer... smell is super fresh mowed grass to my nose... a good friend said it smelled like another fresh type of grass.. not my thing... so I don't know..

Man.. I'm going to find this somewhere for a growler fill or two... love it.
