3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can. Pours a hazy light amber with solid frothy white head. Nose and flavor really bring a pleasant lemon citrus character along with really pleasant dry spruce, hay, and lovely oat bitterness. While the oats may lend a touch of astringency, I think it works with this beer, and the palate really is nice and silky for a sub 5% session pale ale. An intriguing and unique beer, and I think it’s underrated so far.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nose was more hoppy than I expected but in a delightful way, featuring leafy fresh hops, a touch of leafy lupulin, and a touch of lemon rind. The taste is nice and full with a leafy hop bitterness, some mild earthy pale sweetness, and a fresh hop tone. Hard to describe, but I’m not doing it justice. Surprisingly great and smooth and nuanced.
