A-hazy dark gold color with a small head that left fast
S-some lemon and yeast aroma
T-lemon, malt and yeast with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste that fades into a nice finish
M-light body and medium carbonation
O-smooth with a nice bitterness to it that would make this a good beer for the springtime
