Clear light straw color pour with thin white head with a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is a nice balance of bready malt and grassy hops with some faint citrus notes. Flavor is nicely balanced as well, light maltiness without being "sweet" and some light grassy hop flavor without being "bitter". I’m not typically a fan of these lighter summer brews, but this one is pretty good. It’ll be no problem enjoying a couple of these after some yard work this summer.

This beer’s aroma is reminiscent of wheat, lemon and yeast. It pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a large white head that fades quickly. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, but there is more sweetness in the aftertaste. The palate fuses a medium body, thick texture, and a soft carbonation.

Dogbrick (8119) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014, with Boadicea hops: Slightly cloudy orange-yellow color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lace. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, sweet fruit and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short fruity hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Transfer from BA review from Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a pale golden color with a big billowy white head. The head has a pretty decent retention lasting for a few minutes eventually fading to leave a moderate amount of lacing Smell – The aroma is of a bready wheat malt and some lemon citrus and a light herbal aroma. Taste – The taste begins crisp with a nice blend of wheat malt as well as some light citrus fruit notes. Some floral flavors come to the tongue, and with an increase in the lemon citrus, end up lightly bittering the taste. Toward the end a very light grassy flavor mixes with the others and leaves a clean taste on the tongue at the end. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a higher level of carbonation. A refreshing effervescent brew that is very easy to drink. Overall – A good summer session beer. It is very easy to drink with its smooth body, light abv and more simple but flavorful crisp taste.

Light color. Very crisp aroma. Subtle hop presence, consistent with the style. Refreshing, easy drinking. The 4.5% ABV and crisp, refreshing taste means you could pound back more than a few of these on a hot summer evening.
