09/02/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. When the glass went under my nose I had a flash of a soapy smell. A clean fresh but soapy smell. Thank goodness that did not translate on the tongue or palate.

Everything here seems to be in the middle. Very slight dryness, but not the 'brightness' the name implies. Light tastes with a medium plus body.

Not sure where this is going or even wants to be.

(Example: Your driving down the road....open road...you stop for a hitchhiker...a hitchhiking couple...they get in...you drive on...converse..all very pleasant...& they get out. Nice but WTF will you remember except you gave some people a ride.)

Back to the Breckenridge effort...I drank a beer.

This is a good mellow summer beer, as you would expect. Very easy to sip and before you know it you've probably had a few out on the patio. A little bit fruity but not a typical summer wheat beer. Solid.

Mildly sour, some citrus notes. Not overly hopped, no unpleasant aftertaste.
