I enjoyed this beer on tap recently at Ruby Tuesday's.
I was pleased to see it on the list. RT's lists my beloved Yuengling as an option, but alas, it is only for their east coast establishment. BFE Ohio gets no Yuengling. However, they did have SA Summer Ale (SASA?) on draft.
The appearance is mildly cloudy -- not unexpected for a wheat beer.
The smell was a bit lost on me due to a cold (unfortunately).
Taste was excellent and balanced. I enjoyed the hint of spice which, to me, had overtones of cinnamon or nutmeg. I also enjoyed the fact that the spice was not overwhelming, nor was the beer obnoxiously sweet.
Mouthfeel was fine -- no objections.
Drinkability was excellent. This beer complemented my steak and mashed potatoes perfectly on a summer day. An enjoyable brew!
Serving type: on-tap
