Light easy going golden ale with a great tropical fruit aroma, think mango. Taste is straught forward hoppy very little balancing malts make it refreshing but also a bit harsh. Hop flavor mainly pine and grapefruit
Good drinkability. Not watery or fizzy.
Indeed a very nice refreshing beer after a day in the sun.

S: sweet odor with some elements of citrus and bread
T: yummy citrus with a mild hop, sweet, (is that pineapple and banana ?)
F: easy drinking with some pleasing carbonation
I: I don't care what others think, I loved it. Will be on my short list.
