3.8/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had the first three beers from the tap. It took about 5 minutes for each glass I ordered due to excessive foam which lingered quite a while after the pour. Since the tap was just hooked up, the beer was room temp, which didn't hurt anything; almost seemed like I was drinking a cask ale. Overall a very good and refreshing summer brew, although I don't understand the comparisons to Loft. Loft had a hoppier bite whereas this more subdued and malt-accentuated. Finishes dry and thinner than the initial heavy head would have implied. Very enjoyable; easy to drink and nothing short on flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

3.6/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle from summer mix 12-pack. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass...

A: light-copper gold; half finger of light beige foam yields a considerable layer of sugary lace.

S: crusty, sweet malt; light citrus; hard candy shell.

T: pretty simple... Very much like the aroma - mostly sweet malt... Bread crust and brown sugar, followed by a light hop bite.

M: exactly what you'd expect from a 4.2% beer. It's OK. Medium body, high carbonation.

O: a nice summer beer!
