12 oz bottle at Boiling Pot. Pours hazy golden with a short-lived white head. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, sour apple and grassy hops. Body is medium and crisp. Biscuit malt, some herbal hops and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is medium and dry. Nice session brew.

Poured a hazy straw gold with a finger of bright white head. Nice aroma with some biscuity grain, grass, lemon, and honey.

Slightly low carbonation and a creamy, light mouthfeel. Honey and biscuit malt up front followed by some light lemon and a little grainy bitterness on the tail end.

Pretty smooth and easy-drinking, but the more malt-dominated blondes aren't my favorite.

Finger of white head and a golden body filled with carbonation streaming about.

Smells very pilsnery with the malt character, grassy hop, and lemon zest.

The flavor picks up where the nose leaves off with the bread, grass, and lemony/fruitiness.

Clean and light bodied with prickly carbonation.

Ridiculously easy to drink with nice mild characteristics. Goes well with Tex-Mex.
