Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into a pint glass. About two fingers of head. Color was pale honey, somewhat clear. Cloudy white lacing that was even across the top. Wet uneven film on the sides.

Smelled grassy wheat notes up front. Some wheat grass and light honey. Also some light lemon citrus notes. Pretty much what I expected in a summer brew.

Tasted what I expected, much like the smell minus the lemon. Wheat grass and honey ruled the day here. Grainy and grassy.

Light body. Thin, watery texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Somewhat refreshing and watery.

Pretty much your typical summer brew. You always hope for more, but they rarely come through.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium yellow-orange amber. Thin white head that dissipates to a ring, light lacing. Light aroma of herbal hops and sweet malt, not intense, but pleasant. Taste is dry hops and very light sweet malt, citus and pine. Subdued flavors, but does not feel watered down. Light to medium bodied. A pleasant, simple, subtle ale with a nice balance of flavors.
