3.15/5  rDev -10%

Deep golden straw with a big, fluffy white head that lasted for several minutes before dropping.

Hints of honey and hops with a whiff of green apple and fresh cut grass.

Fresh cut lawn and green apples dominated the palate with hints of honey sweetness. This batch was ripe with acetaldehyde. Honey just right. Not overpowering or cloying.

Medium body with a soft and creamy feel. Smooth and drinkable.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, light gold in color

Smell: honey, flowers, a bit of earth

Taste: honey, earth, and wheat

Mouthfeel: slightly sweet, moderate to low carbonation, light bodied

Drinkability: This one has a nice mix of honey and wheat. It is a decent beer, but noting that I would rush out for again.

On tap at the Strange Brew.

A - Straw colored with no discernible head. Constantly carbonating bubbles failed to produce even a thin rim around the glass.

S - Nutty nose with no hop or malt smell to it. There was a mild sweetness that I wouldn't have placed as honey unless I had known.

T - Nuttiness comes through again. The beer is neither heavy on malts or hops. There is again, a mild sweet character to the beer. There is nothing that stands out as impressive, but there's nothing notably lacking either.

M/D - The beer was quite refreshing in the mouthfeel department, and was likewise very drinkable. It went down quick but I didn't feel like having another right away.

Rapscallion is an interesting light-flavored beer. It is neither outstanding or revolting, and as such, it's just a slightly above average pale ale.

I loved this beer! It is and has been my go to beer for a while now. I'm very happy anytime that I can find it on draft. Very cool!! I always recommend it to my friends and drink it at every chance I get. That's why I gave it such a high rating. I truly absolutely enjoy this beer

Lovely clear pour, almost no head. Honey much more apparen in the nose than the taste. Crisp, light tasting, but falls flat after first sip. Note: I had a cold on the day I tried this, so when I make an effort to smell it, it had a tantalizing nose, but the taste is uninspiring. Tempted not to finish.

Had this on tap at the Squealing Pig in Providencetown, MA. Served in a pint glass, cool.

A-dark gold body and a thick creamy white head.

S-sweet wildflower honey smell, faint grain and honey.

T-honey front and strong, grainy finish.

M-light.

D-very nice and sessionable. Nice to taste a flavored beer that is balanced between flavoring and beer. I would drink this again.

On-tap 6/20/09 at The Penalty Box in Providence, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a decent lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of citrus, honey, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste is decently balanced with sweet flavors of citrus, caramel and just a touch of honey. There's a nice hops bitterness that follows and isn't over-powering. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, although it might not be the best pale ale out there, this is a good milder beer to drink for a long time.

On tap at the Phoenix, Cambridge
A golden yellow with no head. Only some bubbles popping up from carbonation. Tangy, light malts and sweet honey with subtle citrus. Taste is honey upfront with a backing of light butterscotch malts. The citrus is present more than in the nose especially at the finish. I like the transition from sweet to tangy bitter. Light body and very drinkable at first but towards the end of the glass I had my fill of honey.

Golden color and clear. Decent head but it fades to rim bubbles. No lace.

A bit iron to the nose. Very mild aroma and I think I pick up some butter with light hop in the background.

The flavor has a bit of black cherry in it. The malt is pale; the hop is floral with a white pepper finish. The mouthfeel is pleasant--decent body with a lower level of carbonation.
