Had this on tap at Yesterdays here in Newport. Asked the bartender to suggest something light and this is what he gave me. He told me, "Its actually a Lager" and I shuttered.

Poured with an ample head. Nose is of wheat and malt. Full, crisp, light flavor of malting, wheaty up front then retreating to the back of the palate. This beer is extremely drinkable and I would have it again as a thirst quencher. Nice and light.

Quite simply the best lager I've ever tasted (but this come from a non-lager drinker!). Enjoy.

Serving type: on-tap

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!

A: Golden with a white head.

S: It has a sweet grain and yeast scent.

T: Sweet grain flavors up front and hoppy at the end.

M: It is medium bodied with a dry finish and highly carbonated.

O: Very drinkable especially in warmer weather. I like how refreshing and clean it was. Would definitely drink again and have more than one in a sitting.
