Beautiful pale yellow with an eggwhite topper that lingers and proves its stickiosity as the glass is laced with each sip. Not quite clear, it's got a mildly cloudy appearance which is the closest to a ding I can come up with.

Nose is crisp and has a lightly sweet malt character with fresh grassy hops perking things up. Definitely feels easter.

Flavour has a lot of the same characteristics, but also has an almost odd creamy middle tone that feels just a touch out of place, though I could also be convinced that it's derived from the vinous/wine-y character the style guideline talks about. It's got some cracker and biscuit malts, but there's also a bold layer of herbacious/pithy bitter hops that will not be denied. This sits a little further back as the temperature rises, but it's still pretty assertive.

Very brightly effervescent carbonation helps bring the spring feeling, and the body is drinkably wet, though there's a stickiness on the back end to go with the lingering bitter finish. The carbonation almost gives it a touch of spice as well

Thanks @Harrison8 for sending this along, it's another one hitting the spot on a sunny spring afternoon!

Pours a golden straw color with a finger of white foam. Head retention is great, with a layer of foam lasting a long while after the pour, and even first sip. Aroma is straw, biscuity and grainy malts. Flavor profile is just as simple - bready, biscuity, toasty and grainy malts. Simplicity is great, and with the attention-to-detail, it resonates well here. Mouth feel is crisp with a thin edge of effervescence that hits and quickly recedes. Thickness is medium-thin. Overall, crisp and refreshing with tight quality control.

Draft. Reviewed from notes.
