The beer pours a light gold color and has a white head that persists throughout the sample. The initial aroma greets you with a light, yeast-derived sulfur character, which fades to allow a fresh, bready maltiness and a complementary supporting spicy and floral hop aroma to emerge. A suggestion of lemon zest appears as the beer opens up, but overall it has a clean lager character. The flavor follows the aroma, displaying a moderate bready, grainy malt with balancing spicy, floral hop flavor. The hop bitterness is prominent but smooth, and helps provide a crispness in the finish. A very enjoyable beer for a summer picnic or any social gathering.
