This is plain and simple, an average, lawn mower, session beer. It was made in the waning days of summer for a party but it was not quite ready. It is a light bodied, low alcohol beer that is almost thin. It has a short lived white head and light copper color. Bitterness is perfect. It was a quickie brew, with no complexity and fit for consuming in large quantities. I'd serve it through a hand pump if I had one.
