This is probably the best beer I’ve ever had that’s this low in alcohol. Pours cloudy yellow with good lacing. Smells like hay and dirty farm hops. A little bit bitter, a little grassy. Very full palate. On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy, golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops with a nice, light maltiness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good beer but I was expecting a little more from these two breweries’ collaboration.

Growler thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong pine, resin hop. Thin mouthfeel with nice light bitter hop, and a bit watery and easy to drink, very impressive.

750 ml bottle from the brewery. Nice pale appearance with a cap of soapy head. Nose is very nice floral hops with clean pale malt. Taste is a vibrant array of hops and malt. Citrus, hay, cracker malt and light grassy hops. Light body with a dry texture. Finish is very clean and crisp. Perfectly balanced beer that I can drink all afternoon and into the evening. Damn Mr. Hill, that magic well water is working yet again! Excellent pale ale.

Growler thanks to 50belair! Pours cloudy golden, medium creamy off-white head with great staying power and nice lacing. Aroma is rich dank grapefruit, passionfruit, pine. Flavor is not quite up to aroma, but still nice, quite light sweet, light bitter, juicy, not harsh. Light body, soft on the palate, a bit watery.
