What a beauty out of the can - a translucent, vivacious straw-gold-ish yellow that bares everything on the other side of the glass. Small bubbles travel rapidly up the body of the beer. Moderate head after a gentle pour leaves a nice webbing of lace in the glass. Aroma is doughy, crackery, bready malt with a touch of floral notes. Taste is lightly toasted white bread, thick cut soda crackers, lime, grassy and faint pepper. Pleasant lingering bitterness punctuates each crisp sip. So drinkable, nicely carbonated. Light bodied and enjoyable. Availability and price (which are always tied together) stops me from having a few cans in the fridge once it's warm out.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: golden yellow in color with a one finger head that lasts a while.

Smell: very light grassy aroma.

Taste: light grainy malt profile with biscuit, cracker, some grass, and lemon zest. A mild spicy bitterness with this beer.

Mouthfeel: lighter in body. Very crisp from start to finish. Clean aftertaste.

Overall: a very easy to drink beer that is extremely refreshing and satisfying.

a nice and simple beer that is very refreshing, great for summer. nice looking brew- almost clear golden color with a dense white head, decent retention and some spots of lace. notes of slightly sweet bready malts, straw, grassy hops. very clean and crisp, nice brew!

On tap at Lost Nation - pours pale, clear yellow with thin white head and lacing, aroma and flavor are clean, simple and refreshing - with grain and a light malt flavor. Light bodied.
