Sampled tonight on 9/18/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and pored in to a tulip glass. Now made in Baldwinsville, NY, used to be in Illinois.

Pours a bright straw-yellow in color with a thin white head that has no lacing seen to speak of. The aroma is of some grains, yeast and some citrus. Pretty much goes for the taste as well with a slight tartness from the lemons. A slight dry finish is noted as well. Lighter bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, it was OK but nothing really special.

03/28/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not as crisp as I'd like. A bit full bodied. Nice balance of flavor.
