Decent session ale - part of a flight at the brewery with Bro and Bob on the way to Cheaha State Park in Alabama. Carrie the production manager opened early for us to taste and tour.

12 oz bottle. Pours dull hazy amber, thin head disappears. Aroma is faint apricot. Taste follows aroma, mild fruit with a little fruitiness and then grassy finish. Flavors are not prominent, just kinda barely there. Mouthfeel is light, smooth. Overall a drinkable session ale on a hot day.

Good Beer. Had it on Tap when out to eat at Simp McGees in Decatur, AL. Light and refreshing with good carbonation. Definitely recommend with seafood!!

Had this for the first time down on the Gulf. Great beach beer!
First serving was in the bottle but second was in a pint glass. Nice color, good aroma, but most importantly great taste! Brought back a 6 to share with friends and they all loved it. Would definitely pick up again if I get the chance.

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Bottled on date of 29 Oct. 2013.
Pour is hazy apricot with a small head that soon reduces to a couple of thin islands.

Aroma: strength of a kolsch but character of a saison.
Flavor: fruity and malty.

O: a session ale and drinks like one in the poor sense that it has little substance. Too bad, because this is distinctive and would be interesting if the flavor and aroma were ramped up a bit.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this one in trade.

Appearance: Golden amber in color with a thin white head, lots of carbonation. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Faint cloves, with a fruity citrus smell. Grassy/earth like notes as well.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops with grassy/earth flavors.

Overall: Good brew. I would have this one again.

I had seen this on the shelf in my local grocery for a while, and decided to pick it up. Upon pouring I noticed that it resembled a lot of generic beers like Coors and Budweiser. It seemed like it would be great at the beach, because of the light flavor and drinkability. By far the lightest craft beer I have ever had. I enjoyed it overall.
