Thanks to Alex (MasterSki) for busting this 32oz growler out for New Hoppy Beer Sunday.
A: Pours a pale yellow golden color with very little white colored head that settles down to just a rim of bubbles.
S: Scents of light hops, lemon and orange peel fruitiness, sweet pale and caramel malt, grains/biscuit, grassiness
T: Similar to the smell but the pale and caramel malt takes over in the flavor; slight lemon and orange peel fruitiness, some grains and biscuit, grassiness, and VERY light hops and mild bitterness in the finish
M: Low carbonation which could be due to the growler and transport, still - this beer is crisp and smooth, which is fitting for the style
D: Pretty highly drinkable - as Alex said "it's be good to have at Cubs games", which sums it up for me pretty well. It doesn't have a ton of great flavor, but when you want to drink a ton of beer you don't necessarily want your palate getting bombarded. I'm necessarily craving more and more though so that doesn't help the score.

Poured sort of a shade darker than most of your big 30' pack lite beers. The white head lasted a good amount of time.
I could not pick up any particular aroma with this one. I knew it was low in hops, so I was trying to figure out what scent I would be getting. If anything, I had a slight hint of fall flowers.
The taste was clean and smooth. In fact it sort of rolled onto my tongue and then down my mouth without causing a lot of excitement..
A nice beer, no real negative comments , just that this is not my style of beer

3.71/5 rDev -5.4%

A very even but bright hue meets the eye with an almost orange color. The head was a thick film of tight knit bubbles.
The aroma was stale but sweet with a cream like nose. Dry malt, dry grain and dry cream all meet the nose.
The flavor is far less creamy that one would expect but it has an assertive malt and an almost burnt character. The cream is evident, but not overwhelming. The malt is dry and charred but not stout charred, just stubborn.
This is very easy to drink but is a tinge dry on the tongue.
I want maybe a little more cream and sweet but this has a character all it own that made it worthwhile.
Serving type: on-tap
