look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours a slightly murky bronze/amber color with a small amount of foamy white head.

It has a nice, sweet cirtrusy hoppy aroma with a hint of floral notes and some grains that come in at the end.

Pretty mellow flavor wise, has a sweet cirtrusy note that dominates most of the flavor with a dry grainy finish.

Its pretty smooth and on the light bodied side, could easily make a session out of these.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

On tap at LaGuardia airport in New York into a stein.

A-My pour arrived with about one and one-half fingers of sticky, off-white head. Lacing was chunky at first. The beer is light-golden in color with a bit of active carbonation visible in the clear liquid.

S-The aroma is mild as you would expect. I smell some toasted bread, biscuit, and a bit dry, grassy hops. Pleasant and simple.

T-The taste tracks the smell mostly. The beer is pleasantly crisp, not quite sharp, but certainly not a sweet, malty monster. There is some grain flavor, toasted bread, biscuit, and hints of hoppy bitterness on the finish.

M-The body is medium to light with crisp carbonation of average strength.

O-A simple but enjoyable beer. This thing won't take you away from your Pliny or BCBS habit, but if you need a decent, easy drinking beer at the airport bar, this is a good choice.

Serving type: on-tap
