On tap at the brewery. My description of this one is simply “soft” at every turn. The smell is faint hoppy, light unidentifiable fruit, maybe melon. The taste brings more soft, muted fruits, no bitter hop punch or malty sweet. Feel is soft as well, with a mild carb finish. Overall unremarkable. Not bad by any means, just not unexpected anywhere. Might be a good gateway to the hoppy side of things for craft newcomers

Basic blank can with a wrap label. Kind of a golden blonde color with a clean but unfiltered appearance with what looks to be moderately higher carbonation level ringing the glass and providing some lacing.
Subtle aroma that showcases the unmistakable pepper vegetal of Ekuanot with perhaps some wafts of berry and lemongrass, and also some yeast. The Ekuanot hops take the stage where flavor is concerned, and that is where I'm torn on this one.
At 5%, this is not a beer that'll get in the way of much of anything, and probably demands you have grilled meat of some variety and a stinky white cheese melted on top to go with it.
