A well executed thirst quencher that won't leave you inebriated after a few quick pints on a warm, sunny SoCal afternoon.

Draft at Beer Shoppe. Enjoyed most everything about this beer, but felt my pour was over carbonated. Would like to revisit to see if the taste/finish were impacted by the carbonation.

Pours a bright yellow with a moderate white head. Smell is subtle with pale malt and yeast esters leading and hops in the background. Nice light flavor with a moderate hop bitterness on the finish. Light body with good carbonation. As is typical of Alesmith, this is an exceptional example of the style.
