Pours a clear golden. Topped by a thick, foamy, white head that slowly fades to a few wisps. The aroma is clean. A hint of sweet maltiness, mostly grassy and spicy hops.

There's a lightly sweet graininess throughout, that's mostly neutral in flavor. Citrusy with hints of fruit in the center. There's a lightly grassy bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied and smooth with moderate carbonation. There's also a nice crispness.

Not at all bland, a refreshing lawnmower beer.
