Bottle poured into a pint glass. A recent find after having seen draft availablity fairly often. Brewed at Bud plant in NY and bottled on 2/17/2013, so about 6 weeks old. Pours a golden straw with a finger of soapy off white foam and good clarity. Offers decent lace and moderate retention.
Bright citrus hop aroma, particularly through the foam initially. A bit more difficult to gather as the pours settles however, yet always available with some agitation. Taste starts with a creamy grainy delivery. Segues to a coarse middle of neutral grain followed by a watery flash and a decent lingering bitter orange character that doesn't have a harsh character to it. Medium bodied feel though it varies through the palate quite a bit. Overall a decent beer for the style and offers good drinkability yet doesn't quite grab you either. Likely exactly what they were aiming for however.
