Bottle shared by GT.
The beer is golden hued with almost no head. The aroma offers some funk, tart fruit, citrus, a touch of wheat. The flavor is decent. Earthy with a touch of lemon. A hint of sweetness with a smooth and easy finish. Light and refreshing. Overall, this was pretty good.

750ml bottle: pours a hazy golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh semisweet wheaty nose and some floral tartness. Starts with good effervescence and light tartness with a subtle sweetness before a drier smooth finish. Pretty true to style, but could be a little tarter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear golden ale with no head. The nose is tangy, woody and a touch buttery. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is tangy - not quite tart – and offers some nice fruitiness. The tangy, lightly buttery finish leans toward the flat and mundane. The diacetyl is distracting, but not a total buzz-kill. Good beer overall. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
