Nice golden blonde appearance, solid head makes for nice retention and lace. Aroma was delicious, nothing getting in the way of the citra hop here. Pungent especially for a summer brew.

The hop flavor is sturdy and the bitterness is low, super light malt base, truly a summer brew with taste. Awesome session beer they really should bring back. Or is it still around and I haven't seen it for a few years? Light toast and citra hops, sounds like summer for me.

A good summer brew, but not the best I have ever had. I think their Hefe Shandy is a little bit better, but this is still quite nice.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: No
