Pours a soft straw yellow with a lively and effervescent carbonation. A rocky and billowing white head. Nose is grassy with some bready notes, a light candy-like quality with some floral notes. Very nice flavor, nice balance of sweet and fruity esters with some floral notes and a candy-ish character. Some spicy phenolics and zesty qualities. Light to medium body with some boozy alcohol coming through and a prickly carbonation. I enjoyed this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a clear deep golden color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma consists of sweet malt with some floral dry hops with light alcohol warming notes. Taste is also a mix of warming alcohol notes with some sweet malt with surprisingly dominant dry and floral hops notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad overall though maybe a tad too much sugar and alcohol coming through.
