Yellow slight amber in color with medium carbonation.yeast,malt and hop aroma.taste is identical to smell but more complex. Very easy beer to drink,not extreme in any area but nicely balanced. Hops are very distinct but not overpowering which made this a very enjoyable beer

Eek, see through light yellow color with quickly dissipating head. This has a yeasty scent with slight malt on the edge. Flavor is fairly decent, spicy hops to start and a bready finish. It's fairly light in mouthfeel with more carbonation than it looks like it has.

Low in alcohol but high in complexity. Easy to drink with a floral, hoppy taste. Ends with a light fruity flavor.
Pours golden with a 0.5" head. Feel is okay, good for the ABV.

An average beer. I've had it from the keg and the bottle. Bottle was much better, but they are both sort of boring. I would carry it again both ways next year but there is nothing memorable about it.

Pours a straw yellow color with a bit of bubbles, seemed pretty clear through the body as well.

Smell is sweet from the cracker malts, touch of spice and hops but otherwise nothing too much. Flavor wise it's a bit weak, some malt dough sweetness, hint of lemon, there's a touch of yeast but overall it's pretty watery.

It's a very easy beer to drink but also very boring.

Pours a clear straw color with very little head. The nose and flavor are mildly funky. The body is light and this offering is very drinkable.

A nice lawn more beer but nothing extraordinary.
