This beer poured out as a clear clean looking yellow color with a foamy white head on top that settles into just a thin film on top of the beer. The smell of the beer is of sweet grains and a bit of yeast in there also. The taste of the beer is grainy and fresh tasting, it's crisp, clean and refreshing. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a decent carbonation to it. Overall this beer is pretty good for the style. It would something is wanna drink in the warmer months. Worth trying.

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.
