Got a six-er of these for hurricane Irene.
A - Not bad, but nothing special here.
S - Nice mild nose of malt, floral hops, and honey.
T - Yes! This is good. refreshing citrus that is overpowered by hops accompanied by a sweetness from the alcohol. Bitters come in nicely (not harshly) and the beer finish is a sharp bitterness with a good balance of honey-like taste.
M - Smooth. Refreshing. But neither take away from the brew.
O - This is a winner for me. Refreshing, but not light. Complex enough to keep you interested. But simple enough to just have with your meal without killing it (I'm having it with my home-made chive pancakes - yes, I cook; so what?). It's a nice staple to have in the fridge. even though I din't need to stock up on beers for the storm (where I am, nothing happened but a breeze) I'm glad I did. I'll definitely go for this again.
