Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, and slight funk aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and mineral-like 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 with a solid but not in your face hop presence.

Perfect smelling beer. Very dry crisp flavor. Not much fruit. Biscuit and grassy flavor. Not very bitter, not big enough flavor. Thick white foamy head. Solid lacing. Pretty good beer. This is the type of beer that you want to drink right after a round of golf or mowing your lawn. Great summer thirst-quencher
