This pours a light golden color and is somewhat opaque. It is heavily carbonated and offers a full pure white head and lacing.
It smells wonderful; sort of a clean, yet musty malt aroma.
It has a mild yet pleasant taste, unobtrusive, somewhat dry, clean and crisp but retains an earthy undertone. The carbonation surely adds to the experience, rather creamy and bubbly with a dry finish.
I'm mostly an IPA guy, but this is a very pleasing summertime ale. The name doesn't seem to fit the beer however - it should be something like Summer Shade. Good stuff though.
