Beer pours a sort of clear honey yellow color with a finger of white head that left a touch of lace in the glass and a thin white film on top. Cracker like grain aromas with a thin bit of lemon on the end. Taste follows suit with maybe a touch of honey sweetness up front and a modest bit of bitterness on the back end. I appreciate the different flavor profile that the English hops have to offer, don't get me wrong, I love Cascades, Chinooks and the like, but it is nice to have something that is not over the top with citrus and pine once in a while. Overall this beer goes down pretty easy, but doesn't offer a whole lot of excitement. Basically if I were at a barbecue and the choices were BMC or this, I would jump all over it. On my dollar? Maybe not.
