Had on tap @ Phish's Super Ball IX back in 2011. The beer wasn't the best I ever had, but it wasnt the worst. It poured clean and had a rich golden color to it. Unfortunately I had to have it out of a solo cup, but it didn't deter me from enjoying it. I wish it was available more often.

On tap at The Lark in East Northport, NY (last night, 10/30/13); pours crystal clear yellow color with a snow white 1 finger head that faded slowly and left decent spotty lacing.

Smells of sweet malt, grains, caramel, light floral hops and mild herbs; very malty overall and a non-hop beer aroma from SN which is unusual but good and par for the style.

Tastes like it smells with sweet malt, roasted grains, caramel, biscuit, floral hops, coriander and mild herbs; the finish is malty and almost like wet wheat bread, but tasty and par for the course.

Mouthfeel is light crisp and almost watery, with mild carbonation, a light body and a sweet malty aftertaste that trails off grainy and almost buttery flavor.

Nice beer and more flavorful than most for the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear pale yellow color with less than 1/2 inch of white head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma had a solid grain base, with some gentle, earthy hops in the background. The flavor profile was the same, solid grains, with some nice balancing hoppiness. The flavors combined nicely for a well balanced combination of flavors.

The body was a bit fuller and thicker than is typical for the style, and had a smooth, crisp and dry finish. Drinkability was very good, you could easily knock off several of these over an afternoon. Overall, a pretty nice take on the style. Maybe not the beer for you if you like your Pilseners on the lighter side, but certainly worth a shot to decide for yourself.
