Way back in my college days, this was one of my favorite beers. It had been many years since I have had it, so when it was on tap at a pizza joint I was visiting, I figured I'd give it a go.
Poured a copper color with orange-yellow tones. A nice fluffy, creamy head. Good lacing.
Aroma was malty, but not very strong. Taste was quite flavorful with some hops bitterness. I found this surprisingly very dry and crips. Very consistent flavor throughout.
Mouthfeel was cleansing with medium carbonation. Overall, it was quite different than I remember [it has been over a decade since I last had this brew]. Not nearly as exciting, but this may have to do with the vast amount of other beers I have since tasted. For those who have not expanded their beer horizons, this would be a good introduction of a good American beer.
Serving type: on-tap

From a 330 ml bottle to a pint glass.
This beer poured a deep golden/honey color with a moderate two finger head that was decent in retention. As the head broke it gave way to some nice lacing and wisps of foam. The smell was malt heavy and the taste was similar with a hops finish. The feel was medium body and somewhat thin.
This would be a good summer dock beer. And I could see myself grabbing a few for the cottage. However, outside of that, it is not something that I would charge the bar for. A good beer, but not great.
