What I love about this beer is the drinkability. Light and flavorful,this beer is perfect any time of the year but especially a hot day on the beach in the summer. Leaves a small pale ale taste in your mouth. The smell isn't strong but has a good flavor over all. Overall one of my favorite beers around.

A: Straw yellow color with a finger of pillowy white on top. In the frosted pint glass it was served it was slighly hazy (after whipping of the frost). Dense lacing with each sip.

S: Very faint hop aroma, not much else

T: A grainy/husky malt taste. Strong bitterness and moderate piney hop taste. lager yeast like charector. very sessionable.

M: Clean and dry

O: After having a couple of these in a bar in southern Georgia I had to look up the style. I was certain it was a pisner or a czech pilz, a lager of some kind. Clearly i was wrong. if you like GI honkers ale or SA Boston Lager this has a very similar vibe, but with a bit more hop bitterness.
