Aroma of hoppy fruits, apricots or apples. Honey and pale malts, lots of bready aromas. Taste has a bright upfront fruity taste with a lingering malty finish, minimal bitterness. Crisp and tasty, good addition to NB lineup.

Sampled this past Saturday on 10/4/14 with a good buddy of mine. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled glass "CHEER'S-BOSTON" stein.

Pours a clear bright yellow in color with a good 2-finger foamy white head that settles down to a good 3mm or so after a bit. A good amount of lacing is seen when sipped, almost rings. The aroma is nothing real special, just of some grains with a light hint of sulfur. Bit more going on with the taste as there is a slight hint of fruit and citrus zest in the mix as well. Does have a tad of a hoppy finish. Lighter bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Not a big fan of this style of brew overall.
