3.58/5 rDev -11.8%
A- Coppery-brown with a two finger offwhite head. Decent retention and some lacing.
S- Aroma is bready, a bit of toast, a bit of caramel and some fruit.
T- A good bit of fruityness floats in there with a reasonably malty flavors of bread and toast. Balanced, but the finish leaves me wanting.
M- Medium body for style, carb is good, but a bit too crisp for the style.
O- It's a decent beer, but there isn't that much exciting about it. Worth a try, but not worth putting much effort into seeking out.

A: Pours a clear copper with three fingers of white head that recedes into a thin layer with decent lacing.
S: Some crystal and pilsner malt-like aromas at first followed by a biscuity sweetness. There are some hints of orange citrus along with a touch of spice. Quite nice.
T: Similar to the aroma, there are some crystal malt flavors at first along with some biscuit notes. Very lightly bitter and pine flavors, finishing crisp and clean. There's a slightly sweaty flavor in the aftertaste which is the main draw-back.
M: Light body with mid-high carbonation, this beer is light, crisp, and refreshing.
O: Old Mecklenburg makes yet another tasty, low gravity beer. Not complex by any means, but a good beer to have on a warm summer evening.

Close to two finger head of cream white, very whipped up froth, freshness extends the head life, unusually high degree of stickiness to the lacing. Copper orange color, as brown as red in tint, very clear and there's not much fade around the rims. Very bready, yeasty nose with sourdough notes, citrus shades come and go quickly, the malty cocoa late to arrive but there, walnuts and straw, pleasingly erect presence in your nostrils. Medium-bodied, the carbonation comes in waves like the shore with the tide going out. Smooth as it holds onto all its weight, uses the yeastiness and touch of grassiness to keep an underlying prickle. The orange, lemon peel is a mild sweetening aspect, helps to bring out apricot and peach pit nuances. The malts are like malts, as in malted milk balls. It really has no sweetness for impact yet isn't close to dry. Pretty damn sessionable, strikes you as a beer that you'd pair with vegetarian cuisine, a "food beer." (Ceramic Wire Stopper)

M - Medium body, crisp, clean, very smooth.
O - Easy drinking with a nice depth of flavor.

Nice copper color with one finger light cream head. Laces well.
Big malt nose with hint of light citrus.
Definite malt bomb. Very crisp hit. Substantial malt body with nice roast flavor in the finish.
Easy drinker for the style, though a little heavy.

Pours a copper-amber with a chill-haze, not much head or lacing. Smell and taste of caramel up front, followed by bread and light hops. Needs much more flavor. Mouthfeel is decent, nicely creamy. You could drink a few, but wouldn't want to. Glad to have a new brewery in Charlotte, hope it grows up and branches out.
