3.53/5 rDev +2%
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.

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

On tap at the brewery poured into pint glass on our way to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby back in 2009. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, low retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw), light hops (earthy), and light hops (apple/pear). Flavor is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw), light hops (earthy), and light esters (apple/pear) with notes of honey. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.

Pours a nice deep straw color with some very nice foamy head, and a nice bit of lacing. Sweet malt scent, with a little hop or spice in the nose. Nice crisp taste, good sweet pale malt; thought I detected oats or wheat in the mix, which I don't care as much for in my blondes, but I know it's a fairly common use; finishes with a slight hoppy and slight peppery taste (German hops or yeast?). Goes down very smooth.
