12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a half inch of foamy white head. Fair amount of lacing. The aroma is honey, biscuity malts, grassy hops, and a hint of funk. The taste is sweet malts upfront with some light sourness. Honey and some cut grass. Floral hops as well. Finishes with some light hop bitterness and more of the sweet malts. Light mouthfeel with a small amount of carbonation. Crisp but has a bit of a harshness to it. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Overall, I probably wouldn't get this on its own, but it is a decent beer to find in a Mix 12 pack.

On-tap 8/3/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains lager yeast, light caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a decent hops bitterness followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness. Then some grain and lager yeast breadiness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
