Poured a pretty clear golden color into the SA Perfect Pint Glass. Nice creamy white head that hung around for a couple minutes and nice lacing. Not a whole lot on the nose: malt, a little yeast, and some flowering overtones. Taste was pretty decent: malt, biscut, some citrusy flavor, and no bitterness whatsoever. Not bad for a summer brew, I guess, but there are better ones out there. Doubtful I'd seek this one out again.

This is a pretty decent beer.... Not close to the best beer out of the New Belgium Brewery, but certainly in the upper half of what I've had from this Fort Collins brewery.... It definately tastes better out of the tap.... It has a "not too hoppy" taste, but quite enjoyable.... It's almost as if there's more citrus notes than it being a super hoppy beer.... I prefer it over Shift, 1554, and would place it right around Fat Tire as far as quality of taste, though they are completely different tastes.
