I give this a high rating on the taste, mouthfeel, and overall because it serves its purpose. If you're going out and want some high-end craft beer, this is not what you're looking for. I have been searching for a high-quality, low-alcohol type session beer for a long time and this is it.

The brewery in Sturbridge is a little slice of heaven and this is the perfect beer to split a growler with one other person while playing disc golf. It's light, it's basic, and it's exactly what you might need on a hot summer day when you want to put a few back and don't want to get obliterated.

The negative reviews on here baffle me because I feel like many commenters are looking for some extra-heady, extra-hoppy pretentious beer and this is not what you're going to get. You're going to get a straight up golden American Ale with a smooth, malty complexion and not a ton of hoppy overtones. The honey really balances out the malt and makes this is a seriously smooth, fun beer.

If you want your mind blown on overdone complexities, this is not for you. If you can appreciate the more subtle pleasures in an easy drinking, malty, and slightly sweet ale that you can put back and not worry about getting shit-faced, you might like this. It kind of reminds me of what the standard light American Lager should taste like.

Serving type: growler

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

Serving type: on-tap
