I found this delightful ale in 750ml wine bottles at my local Shoreline Beverage of Huntington, NY as I was prowling for a new ale. Its light fruit flavors in a reddish-amber coloring made it easy to serve to fellow beer drinkers as well as their wives at a late summer/early fall cook out. It also has a slight bitter/dryness in the aftertaste.
My only regret was not buying more of it to hold in reserve as my guests were somewhat elated as to where this came from, did I have more, and could they take a bottle home (even if it was empty).

3.41/5 rDev -6.3%

Appearance: AWESOME! Beautiful copper finish, crystal clear. Good head retention and nice lacing
Smell: Good hoppy aroma. Nothing outrageously great about it - maybe a slight undertone of vanilla
Taste: Good, but not grabbing me. Definitely has some pale ale hoppiness to it, but nothing that is really grabbing me
Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy, but I'm left with some bitterness that takes away from it
Overall: Looks better than it tastes. I bought a six pack of cans for taking to the golf course or drinking on the riding mower while cutting my grass. More than good enough for that (better than the typical Yuengling or Heineken you find in cans), but I think I'd rather buy Six Point in cans for that for now on.
Serving type: can
