Pours amber in color, brilliantly clear with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is balanced between hops and malt, a bit heavier on the side of malt. A bit fruity. Maybe some caramel as well. Pleasant. Taste builds up on aroma. Initial low bitterness is followed by smoothness of malt. Medium to light body. Low carbonation. Very clean and drinkable. Overall (in general terms) a good beer, judged to style it's an excellent beer.

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
