Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JamesS on 12-10-2009

A seductively soft, easy drinking blonde ale, with an emphasis on a fragile and complex malt character. Made with Belgian candi sugar, honey malt and select Belgian and American grain. Slightly sweet and creamy; perfect for the session connoisseur and the timid domestic drinker looking for an introductory craft beer.

This brew was made to please the novice craft beer drinker. Dubbed the "domestic with a kick" it provides a smooth, pleasant flavor throughout. More flavorful than your domestic beers, but light enough that anyone can enjoy.

A- pours crystal clear pale straw follw with a small creamy white head, a bit of lace left behind

S- grainy, cooked corn, metallic, remeniscent of an adjunct

T- light and malty with some sweet notes, moderately hopped, light fruity esters with a dry finish

M- light bodied, medium carbonation with a crisp finish

O- this is a stp up from an adjunct and a good option for a bmc drinker, but won't do much for creamy beer fans

Had on tap at Oglebay resort in WV.

A: Served in a pint glass, Alpha was clear gold with a small white head on top, not much retention or lacing.

S: Not a ton going on in the aroma, a little bit of grainy malt, some bread, and a little bit of fruit, mostly apple.

T: Flavor is a bit more on the bready side and hoppier with a bit of a grassy flavor.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Refreshing and pretty smooth.

O: Pretty good, was one of the only non big beer choices at the bar at the hotel, and was more than happy to give it a shot.
