I felt it was the most drinkable of Atlas' current offerings, though all were nicely made. Going from memory.

Bright and clear with a nice white head, pale gold in color. A bit of spice hop in the aroma (Saaz hops). Fairly clean flavor profile with a bit of hop flavor, and definitely fairly assertive with the hop bitterness. Dries out a bit in the finish and definitely invites another swallow. Overall nicely done and incredibly drinkable. Kicking myself for not grabbing a growler of it when I visited today.

On draft at Thunderburger in D.C.

The beer is mostly clear and golden hued with a soft white head. Malt, biscuits and some mild hoppiness in the aroma. Easy drinking and clean. Refreshing with a dry finish. Light in body with zesty carbonation. A decent beer. I enjoyed my pint.

On draft at the brewery, pours a clear light amber with a good head and excellent retention, lots of lacing on the glass.

The nose is bread, malt, flowers, and biscuits. A little straw and grain. The flavor is moderately sweet, cracker, bread dough, lots of yeast mixed with floral hops. The finish is clean, dry. This is good, but nothing amazing. Standard, unoffensive, but forgettable.
