The malts shine through with this beer. There is a mild citrus flavor, but it’s subtle, maybe a dark fruit? Not bad.

Smells like Heineken. Tastes like grass and a hint of sour apple with yeasty funk in the background. Drinkable, but not exciting.

Thanks to local beers trade partner for this one. Psyched to try it! Pours a clear yellow-gold with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, light grass, mild fruit, and some yeast. Flavor follows the nose with some malt, yeast, and mild grassy hops. Finish lingers with yeast. Light in body and very sessionable and refreshing.

Refreshing and clean. The appearance didn't impress too much with little or no head and very thin light yellow appearance. But the flavor won me over. Clean, crisp and well balanced. Fizzy, light malt and spice flavored. Favorite hot weather beer for me this summer

Keg @ Captain Lawrence. The pour’s deep gold with a thick white head. The nose is simple sweet grains, lightly peppery noble hops. The taste is honeyed bread, hints of pissy lemon. Solid grains. Refreshing and clean. Watery (not in a bad way). Light. This went down well on a hot day.
