Yum, a new brew from NB and a nice crisp blonde at that. This reminds me a lot like Mighty Arrow.
Light gold with a pretty little head. A nice leafy aroma with some proprietary NB yeast and a good dose of floral and spicy hops. This is a light brew, nothing over the top.
Some dry rye flavors in here, mixed with some powdery yeast and a good dose of sweet malt. It's very well balanced and downright drinkable.
I expected more of an oktoberfest style martzen, overlooking the golden ale part. It didn't dissapoint though. The wife and I tore though a 12pack of this in just two days, so yeah. It's good stuff.
