At the beach so I been drinking adjunct lager for the most part of the day ( budweiser).. but had to have a six pack of craft.. the pour is clear with slight lace.. the smell is slight grass with a biscuit.. the taste is smooth slight sweet barley.. biscuit.. overall really not much different then the bud I been drinking all week just without the adjunct taste when it warms.. its slighty better then the bud but really the crazy price I payed here at the beach (9.99).. I rather just buy some more bud.

Served in a tumbler.

It's summer, so why the hell not have a new NB seasonal? This one pours a clear straw topped by a half-finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises thick grass, mild greenery, and dry, flaky white bread. The taste brings in more of the same, the bread subduing the grass a bit, though not enough to take control of the situation (nor to actually achieve much of a character of its own, despite its best efforts). The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, not a bad little helles, really. I could see drinking more, though it wouldn't likely be the first bottle I reach for in such a situation.
