Draft at the Pasadena location. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw as well as a light touch of citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of straw and citrus, leading to a dry finish where the straw note lingers around.

[Had this as Summerfest at the DC location] A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is very lightly malty with hints of wheat. The flavor is crisply sweet malty with good hop notes that gives the beer both citrusy notes as well as a bitter finish, that balances the sweetness nicely.
