New Belgium does not distribute to NYC but since I was in DC this weekend, I in ally got a chance to try this. Got a 12 ounce can from ChurchKey.

The appearance was light copper with a quickly disappearing head. The smell was light biscuit, very light hops, and some grain. The taste was barley malt, slight biscuit and for some reason, I tasted an apple flavor. Maybe my palate was destroyed at that point? The mouthfeel was thin, a light body and very easy drinking. The is a very good no frills light amber ale.
