64oz. growler (2 days old) into a Pizza Boy pint.

Heavy pour yields a .5 finger coarse white head with low retention. Beer is a semi-cloudy pale yellow. Lacing is non-existent. Pretty poor but rather on par for the style.

Nose is spritzy tart lemon with lightly malty overtones and just the slightest touch of yeast. Pretty aromatic. Real simple.

Opens yeasty, wheat, and citrus tartness. More of the same in the middle with a malt body that emerges towards the end. Some lemon rind and orange pulp in there too. Finishes lightly tart with a yeasty, semi-sweet-tart aftertaste. A touch watered down but still pretty solid for the style.

Light bodied with moderate to ample carbonation. Slick and lively in the mouth and goes down moderately dry and quenching. Finish is dry with a lingering, slightly filmy aftertaste. Super drinkable.

This isn't a stand-out in the style but nonetheless its still a very solid brew. Simple from the nose to the palate but very drinkable and I could see myself imbibing this all day in the summer.
