Had on-tap at Porter's in Bellport.

Unimpressive pale gold with good clarity and a thin white head that I'll chalk up to the bartender. Decent lacing. Big buttered popcorn smell with faint toasted malt behind. The taste is similar but worse, with an oily mouthfeel in the finish. Good carbonation and fine body, but it was hard to focus on it while I was trying to block out the taste.

Big quality control issue (diacetyl?) with this keg. I'll probably contact the brewery tomorrow, since the general agreement seems to be that this isn't normally a bad beer. A sad way to break into a new brewery though, that's for sure.

Growler filled somewhere I cant remember, on Long Island.

Pours medium light honey amber, near clear, off white head with decent staying power, fine bits amd strands of lace left behind.

Light hint of toast in the nose.

Light and easy drinking, just a bit more toasty flavor, along with a hint of honey and apricots, minor bittering.

Summer beer all the way, simple, straight forward,refreshing and pleasant enough.

Had on tap at finney's on fire island. Brew arrived with a clear gokden color and a thin frothy white head. Really nice sweetness. Very tasty smelling. Almost a bit of lavender in the smell. Taste is equally impressive. Again nice sweetness, malt heavy. Finishes a tad nitter. Smooth and easy to drink.

Took this one to go after hearing nice things. Poured with vigor. Pure white head. Good lacing. Beautiful clean aroma. Soft full and delicate. Subtle grass and fruit. Perfecrt balance in taste. Great hop finish. A bit chalky in the end but otherwise great. Light tart and refreshing. Overall a solid beer and very well done.
