Bright citrus flavors and a light, silky mouthfeel reminiscent of sunny days by the beach make this beer an instant Summer classic. This homebrew variation of the American classic is the original version, perfected.
Noble German hops early in the boil and sweet orange peel, lemon & lime zests at knockout make this beer fruity and balanced. The flaked grains in the grist form a thick, creamy head that persists through the entire glass. All in all, you'll be hard pressed to find an equally refreshing beer that pleases both craft and macro beer drinkers alike. Carbonate this beer a little higher than you normally would for a truly refreshing Summer ale. Coming in at a quaffable 4.8% ABV, you'll be able to drink this beer by the keg.
Due to the high percentage of pilsner malt, a 90-minute boil time is recommended. Adjust your boil volume as needed to achieve 5.25 in the fermenter.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
