12oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A: pale amber, clear. 3 fingers of bubbly white head with good retention.
S: (i have a bit of a cold, so i can't smell all that well right now.) malt, biscuity grain.
T: carbonation fills the mouth at first, so it's hard to pick out the initial taste, little sweet in the middle, crisp finish, only a hint of bitterness. not picking out the hops, but that's likely due to my aforementioned cold.
M: quite carbonated, but it matches the style. low-medium body give this a balanced profile.
overall: maybe it's the logo on the front, but this beer leaves me pining for the bleachers at Fenway (just a week or two away). great early summer beer -- i wish they served this out there.

12oz single purchased from Wegman's in Collegeville, PA. BB date of June '14. Appropriately (or inappropriately) poured into an '09 NY Yankees World Series Champions pint glass.
A-crisp, clear golden/orangish color. ton of bubbles. solid finger of white foam, decent retention. looks refreshing and tasty. good amount of lacing left on the glass.
S-citrus. some bready notes. I don't detect a whole lot. no hop aroma.
T-toasted flavor. some caramel malts. lemony/sour finish
M-light bodied. little carbonation-which is strange given the continuous bubbles rising. very smooth, creamy texture.
O-easy to drink. low ABV. smooth and refreshing. These factors make this a very drinkable ale. however...there is nothing that makes it stand out. definitely wont satisfy those looking for the big hop flavor. not a favorite, but could see myself putting another back as I'm grilling after work.
