Light, simple, and drinkable at those special gatherings you sometimes get lucky enough to happen upon - a beautiful golden goodness that's worth gathering about.

I wasn't extremely impressed with this but it isn't really the style i enjoy. Usually back pocket has my attention but I don't know about this. I know this is a flag-ship for them.

Sampling right now on 2/11/14, Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a nice honey gold in color with a small white head that settle down to nothing. NO lacing at all either. The aroma is of grains with a hint of sweet bread/yeast. The taste was actually really smooth like the aroma with a very slight hoppy finish that last about 2 seconds. Overall a great beer that goes down easy and would be a great choice for a warm summers day as well.
