Not a bad beer, very light and unoffensive. Good party beer. Also good for enjoying on a picnic or something similar. Very easily drinkable, and enjoyable if you don't care to explore the complexities of beer. I'm starting to think that the IPA is the only thing really defining from Bridgeport. Could be worse, but I probably wont buy this ever again, especially as the same 7 dollars can get something much more interesting in the grocery store.

Pours an effervescent golden/honey with 2 fingers of fluffed up white head. Very good lacing & excellent head retention
S: Grainyness & a little grassyness
T: Grassy with some lemony hop notes up front. Some honey malt notes & grainyness follow as this warms. Finishes grainy with citric hop notes & fruittyness (apples & pears)
MF: Slick & bubbly at the same time, pretty good balance & medium bodied
drinks fairly easy, nothing super complex, here just a real easy BBQ/beach-type blonde. Liked this more than I figured I would

A: Pours a light golden color, smallish white head, very slight lacing down the glass
S: Smells very grainy, biscuty. Floral scent.
T: Taste almost reminds me of Rolling Rock actually. Rolling Rock is one beer that I will drink if I'm in a macro type hillbilly bar, I actually like the taste. Tastes like biscut malt with some floral/sweet flavor in there as well.
M: Slighlty prickly on the tongue, maybe a tad overcarbonated
D: Not bad really, would be very tasty after doing some yard work on a hot summers day or something.

Presentation: 12 oz bottle, embossed like the other Bridgeport bottles. No date information, rooster drinking a beer on the label.
Appearance: Bright gold color with a medium head, good retention and lacing.
Smell: Bready malt, grassy hops. Mild aroma, but nicely balanced.
Taste: Very drinkable - good balance of bready malt flavor - a bit of floral and grassy hops in the finish.
Overall impression: Great summertime beer - easy to drink, but still very interesting.

First one...ouch. Pours nice and light straw colored with pale white head. Small streaks of carbonation slowly find a way to the top. Smell is light and notes of fresh hay, slight floral, small bitterness of hops, and the sweetness of honeysuckle. In the mouth it is light and wet with a little slime feel as it slides down the throat. Taste is lackluster and for an EPA as stated it is lighter and less "hoppy" than it's IPA cousin Bridgeport is known for. A good beer for the summer, well rounded and light in body with a slight sweetness throughout and a small bitter end. Good job of a summer slammer with some taste.
