From notes. Had on tap at Arcadia.

Appearance is a very light golden straw with a finger of white head. Smells are grains, some lemon, very musty with maybe some wet blanket. Tastes are slight funk at front with some lemony citrus in the middle, bitter finish. There's a good amount of carbonation, but this beer seems a little astringent. Good beer but maybe a little too bitter for me to session with.

Had on tap at Arcadia.

A- Pours a clearer golden straw color. One finger white head shows light retention. Light streaky lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Light aroma which is the biggest downfall I thought for this beer. Light grassy notes with some earthy hops in the ending. Hay like notes show themselves in the far back of the aroma. Everything was very muted in the overall aroma.

T- Light grainy flavor upfront. Some middle of the road bitterness in the....well middle. Some light grassy notes in the ending with some earthy tones throughout. Pretty much the only thing going for it.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is higher for me but overall a little higher for the style. Flavors were clean but light overall. Light grainy feel left on the palate with some light bitterness in the aftertaste.

D- This beer has enough flavor to make it very drinkable session beer. I like the overall lower ABV on this one. Arcadia has picked up the game I think.
