Can poured into a shaker pint glass, a pale straw yellow with billowing white bubbles, exactly as I remember this beer from my grad school days when it was a staple at the pub, complete with horrid citrus wedge floater. None of that this time, although after concentrating on this beer's flavor I can kinda understand where the urge to apply further seasoning comes from. Aroma is sweet and buttery, more so than its counterpart Big Rock Velvet Fog, with a saccharine fruitiness that recalls fermented apple juice, faint lemon and lime rinds, and white bread barley malt ... No real wheat spice on the nose although there is more of this on the palate, with apple and faint lemon starting things off and musty white peppercorn spice showing up late, along with a little root cellar funk and metallic notes. Thin, fizzy yet with a diacetyl slickness, and generally unoffensive and easy drinking. Finishes semi-dry. I prefer Velvet Fog, which has more wheat character and a more assertive flavor period, although with this style of beer we aren't expecting anything too robust. I have a few more cans squirreled away for a sunny day.
