12 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head glass

A - pale straw with a small head which dissipates quickly, leaving only a small ring, but with some lacing.

S - all I got on the nose was a bready smell....but it was faint.

T - kind of a one dimensional flavor sort of piney with a dry metallic finish.

M - thin and watery.

O - easy to drink, but completely unimpressive.

On tap at Fox and Hounds, Raleigh.
Pours a pale golden yellow color, with an inch of white foam. Head fades to a thin cap, leaving a spider web of lace.
Smells of some malt sweetness, and a bit lemony, minimal hops.
Grainy malt taste, with some mild lemon at the end. Mild bitterness at the end.
Mouth feel is on the lighter side, medium body, crisp and clean aftertaste.
Overall, well balanced and easy to drink beer, fits the style.

Straw colored, decent inch or so of head that diminishes but never really goes away. Smells bready. Tastes metallic. Just... metallic. Pretty one note.

Not terrible, but not worth seeking out IMHO.
