On-tap at Phebe's Tavern & Grill, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short light beige head that hardly died down.
S: Light aromas of sweet toasted and caramel malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and is mostly dominated by malty flavors—toasted matls and bits of caramel sweetness stand out in particular. No bitterness is perceptible, but there is enough hops to prevent this from being overly sweet.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, smooth and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink. While it doesn't have much in the way of interesting flavors, it does have a pleasant mouthfeel.

Serving type: on-tap
