Best of the style I have had, maybe Eureka w/citrus was close. This brewski is just imminently drinkable, all up in your face with a nice combo of floral and citrus over Pilsner crackers malts.

Light gold, frosted haziness. Soapy, bubbly cross-section view of head. Very sizable to start, and mantains 5 mm thickness throughout session. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Hops are fruity if tropical. Berries and light pine, but still predominantly malt. Smooth feel, but runs close to medium body. Low finishing bitterness, and residual sweetness on end. The taste never loses its bready and crackery malt sweetness. Woodsy moss, kolsch like fruitiness. Characteristically clean like all suarez beers; it's sessionable beer, but not necessarily crushable...hoppy sweetness piled on top of doughy malt make it quite filling.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy yellow with a big fluffy head. Smells of Pilsner malt, grassy hops, a little citrus. Tastes of lemon, citrus, light sweetness. Earthy back end. Tingly citrus hops linger, like lemon pepper. Light body. Interesting and not what I expected at all.

Had on tap at Half Moon in Hudson, NY. First I've seen of this beer.

Another great little offering from Suarez. Pours a light hazey pale yellow. Smell of pine and citrus hop notes. Taste is nice and hoppy upfront with a short and dry finish. Really enjoyed it. The term 'crushable' comes to mind.
