A-hazy dark gold color with a small head that left fast
S-some lemon and yeast aroma
T-lemon, malt and yeast with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste that fades into a nice finish
M-light body and medium carbonation
O-smooth with a nice bitterness to it that would make this a good beer for the springtime

This and Heineken are my absolute favorite beers and they brew this 2 miles from my house! The only downfall is that at all of the Fordham/Old Dominion events including R2Hop2 and etc. they never have it to fill your growler! The taste is unbelievable! This is a great beer and typing this I'm going to get some at Dover Liquor Warehouse by my house! I am now editing cause I got the last sixer at store!
