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.

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.

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!!

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.
