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

Golden-amber color, clear. Some carbonation. Thick frothy head.
Spicy and herbal, a little lemony, some semi-sweet bread.
Bread crust, mild toast, biscuit. Hop bitterness is moderate, herbal, spicy, leafy. Finish is a little dry, very crisp. Body is medium, crisp, refreshing, a little tangy.
It's a very good beer.

A: Clear, semi dark gold. Medium carb. Sticky dotted white lacing with low retention.
S: Wheat barley and a touch of tangy rye. Slightly sweet doughnut like bread.
T: Slightly sweet with a tangy rye bread. A little warm nutmeg taste through the middle. Finishes carbonic and watery. Quite clean with slight sour tang finish.
M: Mildly dry and good reasonably clean finish. Fairly thin.
T: Better than a macro light beer, but only by a slim margin. It sits in limbo between styles for me: If I want water I'll have water, if I want beer I'll drink something bigger.
