Apperance: Clear, light golden apricot. head is white, frothy with lacing that sticks all the way.
Nose: Sweet carmel malt. Slight vanilla in the finish. Some lime.
Taste: Crisp, with some clear hops right away. The hops stays with you all the way through until the end and then vanishes. A little sweet in the middle, syrupy and a little malty. Carbonation sneaks up on you at the end, but it wakes your taste buds up a bit.
Notes: When all they have is Coors, Bud Light and Sam, ALWAYS grab a Sam. In my opinion this is the best, most reliable beer in the US. Great job Jim!!!

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.
