3.74/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: It pours yellow with slight clouding. It has a slightly off white head. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: It has a lemon and melon aroma. There are some mint qualities well into the background. There is an herbal quality that is evident once the beer warms a bit.

Taste: It has lemon, mint, and herbs in the taste. The herbal pronounced in more pronounce than the mint and lemon.

Feel: It has a medium body with an bitter herbal aftertaste that is long lasting.

Overall, the hops really shine through as it is very clean. The malt flavors are minimal.

3.93/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + honey + brassy colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering a little more than 95% of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/lemon, citrus/lime, herbal, and pine hops over the top of just shy of moderate aromas of toasted + grainy + biscuit + caramel malts with a minimal amount of caramel sweetness. Light aromas of lager yeast.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of toasted + grainy + biscuit + caramel malts with a minimal amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of lager yeast, Finally there are moderate flavors of citrus/lemon, citrus/lime, herbal, and pine hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a light amount of dryness in the finish. Relatively clean.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. A nice hoppy lager that is enjoyable and matches well with the hot late spring weather.
