3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is golden orange with a off-white head and good lacing. Very floral, light lemon, grass, straw, biscuit, citrusy and fruity; very delicate aroma. Taste is big honey, flowers, lavender, wax, grass, and grapefruit with a light bitter finish. Light and soft with low carbonation. Very different pale, and I’m loving the soft and delicate features in this one. Well-done!

Clear copper with a big foamy lacy head. Wonderful complex aroma of nutty caramel, floral grassy hops with a touch of lemon and grapefruit rind. The flavor is a little light but satisfying, with some grassy hoppy bitterness, earthy caramel, and a dry biscuitiness.
