A - Hazed gold body, white head has good retention and some lacing.
S/T - Light hop presence, mostly floral in the nose, with more of a pine taste with a little citrus. Bready malts, a little doughy, light toasted grains. Touches of off flavors butter and acetone here and there, didn't really affect the drink too bad though.
M - Medium body, crisp carbonation and finish.
O - Standard pale, not bad, but not particularly memorable either.

A = a nice cloudy amber. My pint was served extremely cold, probably due to the sub-zero temperatures in the cellar during the cold NH winter. As a result, it had only a slight head. I actually had to wait awhile for it to warm up for the rest of my tasting.
S = Brisk? Can I use that term for beer? Also, a slight scent of citrus and yeast/bread. No detectable hops, light if any, and that makes me happy.
T = Reminded me very much of a heavy pilsner. Crisp, nice medium-light flavor. Very drinkable.
M = Again, like a heavy pilsner, if there is such a thing. It complimented my lunch quite nicely!
O = Even if I didn't seek this ale out, I would order it again if I saw it on a menu. I would even drink it sans food, as it is crisp, refreshing and leaves no "beer-ish" aftertaste. A very nice beer, indeed!
Serving type: on-tap
