3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a golden yellow. Taste was of hop bitterness, malt, slight bit of lemon. Bit of a grassy taste but not quite piny. Slight floral aroma as well, similar to an IPA but much less intense. This beer walks a fine line between, pilsner, IPA and helles lager. Very drinkable.

This is a great beer. A little hops, some grass flavors, some biscuty malts, a touch of yeast VERY well balanced. Could drink a lot of these.

So much more than I expected. Pours light gold and clear with a lovely white head. Scent is dry earthy grain with hint of lemon. Flavor is more complex than expected. Bubbly and crisp mouthfeel. Bottle - Extra in Trade with Treebute

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap into an english tulip pint. The aroma is mostly floral with some bread malt notes and citrus accompanying it. It has a moderate foamy head which dissipates quickly and leaves some trace (minimal) lacing. This sits atop a clear gold colored beer. This initial taste is sweet honey and caramel with some mild maltiness and some very light trace resin bitterness. It’s medium bodied with active carbonation. It goes down somewhat syrupy, but more or less dry. The initial sweetness fades with warmth and gives way to a dry, mild, but more pronounced, bitterness. It finishes mostly mild, hoppy bitterness accompanied by the floral notes sticking around.

Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a mild hop palate and smooth malts. A brew that you can certainly enjoy on a warm summer day.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden pour with a nice white head. Aroma of malts, honey, and bread. Tatse is very crisp, malty, with a very nice finish. Overall a great lager, very well balanced and complex in a style that often yields a bland result to me.
