poured into a jar glass...be burley

lovely ruddy golden

light whiff of herbal pine...vague perfumy finish

grassy with slight earthy herbal hop tones. gently dry hopped

smooth mouthfeel, light on the palette...in a good way

subtle is the operative descriptor with this one. easy drinking with a perfect bitterness. definitely fits the easy going image of the brewery. perfect 420 beer to quench ones thirst. as to the negative reviews, maybe you just need to step back and chill on this one, youre definitely not getting it.

Water is definitely the operative word here, but it's tasty enough. Compared to everything else we had while in the area, it was pretty darn good.
