  • Pours a nice clear straw golden color with a one inch head. Head dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of creamy head floating on top. Nice sticky lacing.

    Aroma is mild but pleasant. Sweet honey, barley, malt, and mellow lemon give this beer a very clean aroma.

    Taste is very refreshing and clean. I am getting a nice mellow lemon with well balanced malts up front. This works into a sweet honey with a bit of a grassy flavor on the back end.

    Light body with medium carbonation. Dry on the palate.

    Overall, this is a nice clean refreshing beer. A nice balance in the flavors and aroma and goes down easy. Fits the spring weather perfectly!

  • Poured clear with a solid, snow white, two inch foam. As it recedes, which is above average, it leaves a stickly, web like lacing behind..

    Aroma is sweet pale malt with honey mixed in. A lemony, fresh, grassy scent is there too. Not that strong of an aroma.

    Taste is clean, crisp, and refreshing. Sweet malt with a similar lemon profile in the middle towards the end. I big hit of honey (sweetness) in the finish that seems to go a little unbalanced. The honey lasts into the aftertaste.

    Definitely a light mouth feel with a mild carbonation.

    So refreshing and easy drinking that this time of the year it might be looked down upon. It is a solid beer that is a light beer - to style. I have been drinking big, bad ass beers that make this seem light. It is but it isn't trying to compete with those. Enjoy!
