COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Served on tap (non dry-hopped) and cask (dry-hop variants). A great session Drop of lotion to oil all the parts. Summer ale brewed all year round. An extremely pleasant, straw colored beer with a gorges fresh, hoppy aroma. This, coupled with an ample bitterness, leads to a long, dry finish.

Draft pour at Colorado Plus. I was told to everybody and their brother to try these guys’ beer on Cask. So what do I do? Go find me some on regular tap. Pours a transparant gold with little to no head. Grain forward straw flavor with a mild hop addition late. Refreshing brew for sure. Light, crisp flavor. Overall pretty good.
