Two Hearted is my favorite beer, but this is just slightly above average for a brewery I hold in very high regards. It's biggest redeeming quality is its proclivity as a session beer. It is also useful to get some new fans of craft beer as this has no offensive qualities. The unfortunate flip side is that it also has no outstanding qualities. But that goes with the style, I suppose. I have recommended this beer to people who are curious about beer to hopefully convert some macro drinkers to the better side of beer drinking.

Cheers!
