I am like many others as this was one of my first forays into the microbrew world. I have revisited it since it was my only choice of good beer in a small town. I was not disappointed. The amber hue and thick white head, although short-lived, were pleasing to the eye. The smell was of hops that had overwhelmed its malty companion. The taste went to the malt, however the hops were making a comeback at the end of the flavor. The beer was smooth, yet popped on my tongue with carbonation and this is one of those full-flavored beers that can be consumed en-masse. Excellent.

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.
