Pour is hazed pale golden with lots of tight white head. Nose is light grain, faint honey, a bit of sweet malt, hops are herbal with notes of melon rind. Taste is even sweeter, stronger grain but more sugar, lighter malt, hops are husky melon rind and a bit grassy, hay like. Very light bitterness, drinkable, moderate carb.

Very very pale straw color. Smells like corn with some hops. Big bitter taste. Slight corn taste. It’s ok.

Earthy. Bit malty. Some pineapple. Lighter bodied. I feel like there is some pilsner malt that is fighting with the hop flavors. A miss for me. Not terrible, but could go without it.
