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.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Deep and slightly muddy orange/red body, slightly cloudy, but looking fairly alright if a bit murky on the body color. Forms an off tan almost orange/yellow tinge head, at a simple three fingers with a flat top styro puck. Minimal retention, a bit creamy, but otherwise fine.

Nice mild bread notes on the aroma, with some good toasty to match. Faint hint of sticky lager like pasty yeast quality, with a clean sensation. Mild hints of citrus fruit but very small but noticeable. Pretty basic but solid.

Palate washes a little wet, but manages some of the basics. Real interesting notes of fruit on this, almost comes like an ale yeast esters flavor but has to be from some sort of fruit forward American hop variety. Slightly juicy but washes a bit to wet off the palate with some fruit orange, mild spice, and lemon tropics in the mid palate. Malt angle manages a bit of sweetness but fairly subdued, but aftertaste brings some toast. Some warmth seems to bring out some interesting banana as well. Crispness seems a bit downsided, with carbonation being fairly middle of the road but gives some good sticky lager yeast on the finish as well.

It's an interesting take on a steam brew, but is missing I think some of the toasty notes and classic bready character I like from the style. It's still a very solid enjoyable brew though. Hope someday they can NSFW.
