Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear, light straw color with a small white head. The aroma is grass, yeast and some grains. The taste is a slight yeasty bread flavor with some grass tossed in.

Poured into tulip from growler, minimal head, so so lacing. Bright hazy yellow in the glass. Biscuit and grassy/floral hops on the nose. Mild bitterness on the front, some malt sweetness in the middle with some grassy hops, a mild spicy semi dry finish. Nice beer to pair food with, clean taste, not to abrasive on the palate.

Pours a mostly clear yellow golden color with white colored head. Cereal grains, crisp and clean on the aroma, almost a typical lager yeast note too on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes very crisp and clean.

12 oz bottled 2/6/17 poured into a perfect pint at fridge temp. Straw color of yellow with short lived white head. Settles into a light cap with good lacing. Smell is earthy & flowery. Taste is mild bitterness first moving into the light malt, earth & flower tastes at the finish. Mouthfeel is good with a dry finish. Overall, good and easy drinking. It seems as though Bell's did a good job making this one to style.
