Clean aromas, malty, green hops, seltzer, minerals, grassy, some malt but mostly clean. Flavors are a touch salty, some minerals, grassy, malt centric, pretty dry, grassy and bitter. Seems to accentuate malt over hops (slightly), neutral/clean, and very dry. Medium carbonation and medium bodied.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a relatively clear golden color with a white head. Nose is somewhat buttery, almost like buttered popcorn. A bit of bready malt sweetness. There are some decent citrus notes and a mild fruitiness, though. The flavor has plenty of the buttered popcorn character and quite a bit of fruity esters. Some citrusy hops, a light maltiness, and some bread. Not very enjoyable.
