My very nice sis-in-law from DC brought this down to me in Nashville this weekend. Says it's very popular up there.

A: Pours clear with a reddish amber hue. Very thin off-white bubbly head, some retention.

S: Sweet cider, malty, somewhat earthy and husky.

T: Nice balance of frothy malts with slight hop bitterness on the backbone. Clean, with up front flavors of biscuit, grass and corn. No lingering aftertaste to speak of.

M: Thin but not too watery. Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: As they say, very sessionable and enjoyable beer. Nothing groundbreaking here but they've done it right and I would likely purchase this from time-to-time if I lived w/in the distribution area. Til then will have to convince the sis-in-law to bring me more samples from this brewery.
