3.33/5 rDev -7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
22 oz brown bomber with a freshness date on the side of the label.
Appearance: Densely tiny bubbled lace sticks everywhere, dusty weather golden colour comes close to a beige hue.
Smell: Biscuit dough, yeast and flour light hops, malt and fruitiness.
Taste & Mouthfeel: A grand smoothness softens the yeasty blow, not that the yeast has a bite but it is there like a thick blanket after a winter storm. The maltiness has a sturdy steam and branches off into biscuity and grainy flavours. Bread wheat malt. Hops are mild with a monotone citric flavour.
Notes: A simple ale, small in stature but still flavourful.
Serving type: bottle

3.88/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: Pint size, on tap from the Eastside Grill, Northampton, MA.
Appearance: Slightly cloudy, with a smooth white head that left rings around the glass as the level went down.
Smell: This brew had a nice clean balance of malt and hop aromas, with hints of a pleasing citrus smell.
Taste: A very light ale, with an extremely refreshing amount of carbonation. Lovely honey, lemon, and nut overtones followed by light sweet malt afters.
Notes: By far on of the best American Pale Ales in the NE on tap. The chicken, shrimp, and andouille jambalaya complemented this extrodianry brew. Mexican and other Cajun meals would also be recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
