ok, decent beer. It is light. Head and lacing ok. Color is nice. Flavor has a touch of citrus and malt. Kinda has a very light of hint of maybe a lemon muffin. Hope I am not stretching too far with that description. The finish has good carbonation and is clean and crisp. By no means am I comparing to a Michelob ultra, but this beer had somewhat of a similar clean, dry finish. I liked it !!

My house mate and I bought this as a Sixtel for our newly built home keg-orator. Being that we Live in Northern VA and had experienced the Blackout first hand we were intrigued to try a local Brew that resulted from the power outage. It's hazy appearance is not unlike a hefeweizzen but it drinks like a Pils. It holds a good head and it is very light on the pallet, leaving behind little more than light citrus and bitter hops. As a "last-ditch effort" I say its decent, if it could be improved I would buy this again.

On tap at Evening Star cafe's block party. It poured a pale, golden yellow color with a thin frothy head barely covering the top.

The aroma shows a good amount of crisp fruit flavors to it. The estery notes from fermenting warm are pretty noticeable, but not bad. A little citrus is there as well. Not As clean as an aroma as they intended I'm sure, but not actually bad all things considered.

The taste follows with more of the crisp fruits, but adds a little bit of a tartness. The fruity esters are a little more noticeable as you get to the dry finish. Again, just a little bit of citrus there.

The mouthfeel is a little heavy feeling for style with carbonation being moderate. Overall, it was a pretty decent beer all things considered. It was definitely worth saving the batch instead of dumping it, but I can't say I'd be making it a regular purchase though.
