On-tap 9/8/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, caramelized malts, lager yeast and citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness comes in followed by breadiness from lager yeast and a hearty malt character creating a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

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

O: Very tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.

Poured a golden body with large foamy head and lace patches everywhere.
Aroma is grainy with good citric hop presence and touch of sweetness.
Smooth body that is light-drinking, this beer has mostly a bitter citric hop taste as well as some sweetness from pils malt and light fruit sweetness (straddles between tropical and grape).
Well balanced and enjoyable beer that keeps the ABV well-hidden.

2.58/5  rDev -39.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, bright yellow in color, clear

Smell: pithy citrus rind

Taste: grain, light butter, and tropical fruit hops

Mouthfeel: light body, slightly bitter, medium carbonation

Overall: Not what I was expecting. This had a buttery grainy taste to it that was not appealing. I usually like Bruery beers, but this did not come together for me. I will be passing on this.
