On tap for the 2014 Los Angeles Vegan Beer Festival held in West Hollywood, CA.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but has a much better smell in my opinion.
