Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head that quickly dissipates. The aromas are moderate and amazingly crisp with notes of subtly spicy fresh hops. The palate echoes the nose, with clean notes of lemon essence and hop florals backed by hints of honey-dripped malt. Moderate and delicately bittered finish, this balanced and refreshing lager is a perfect brew to complement virtually any summer activity or eats, particularly chicken wings and baby back ribs.

Clean fresh cut hay, spicy hops ... a very clean nose. Crispness is beyond belief, so refreshing. Clean but dry malty palate, hint of lemon in the spicy hop character that lends a nice bitter bite. Touch of herbal hop and grain husk middle to end, finishes quite dry. Give one of these to a macro drinking friend and see what happens. I could easily go through a few on a hot summer day.
