At Sea Dog (South Portland location):

In a pint glass:

A: transparent golden colored body with no visible head (that might have left before I recieved my beer), lacing was lightly spotty and left no visible rings

S: pale malts and just a touch of hops

T: malts and the hops, but nothing particularly interesting

M: very light, very sessionable, no harshness on the tongue, no aftertaste, crisp, clean finish

O: not a bad beer and I think I would have this again, but nothing to scream about.

The beer pours a pale gold color with a 1/2" white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light, pale malt scent with a touch of hops and ringwood yeast esters. The taste is average. It has a light and grainy, pilsner malt flavor that's watery, yet quaffable. It's devoid of malt character, yet has a faint hop taste. It goes down easy with crisp, clean finish. The mouthfeel is average. It's a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a great hot weather beer. It's light and low in alcohol. It would be a great session ale for the hot months of the year.

This beer is a light better then say a bud but not much. There is no aroma and the look is very light golden color. The head was there but dissipates quickly. This starts with a sweet wheat tastes that finishes fast. For a light its ok not the best but not the worst.

Off the tap this beer was a bleached golden color. The head was one-finger, snow-white, retained decently and left good lacing. The aroma... was non-existent. Lame. The flavors were also weak, hints of grain and very light pale malt with a semi-bitter character at the end. The mouthfeel was miserably watery, the body light and the carbonation medium. Craft-brewed, beer-flavored water.
