I had this on-tap at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery in King of Prussia, Pa. It was served in a pint glass.
Appearance: A cloudy orangeish body with a thin white head providing better than decent retention but poor lacing.
Smell: It came across as overly muted. Sweet pale maltyness.
Taste: Lots of estery flavors especially a green apple sense, other fruits came across as well, but generally were lost to the green apple.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing.
Drinkability: Good.
Don't drink and review.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours medium copper/amber color with a decent long lasting head,aroma is malty and lightly toasted with some fruity estures.taste is subtle and malty with a definant hop presence in the finish,some light fruity malt flavors as well.A real quaffer and appetizing to boot a real solid beer from RB.

A crystal clear and deep amber colored body rests beneath a frothy white head that holds well and initially leaves rings of lace about the glass. The nose combines lightly toasty and gently caramelish malt with floral and piney hops alongside a whiff of lager-yeast sulphur. It's gently crisp in the mouth with a fine carbonation and decidedly medium body. The flavor mimics the aroma with the addition of some yeasty fruit (as well as its light touch of sulphur), backed by a solid bitterness that ushers in a dry finish laced with hops. An excellent representation of the style with an emphasis on malt character. Very nice!!!
