A: a translucent amber bubbles with a very thin head.
S: hints of hops and malts underwhelm the nose.
T: some initial bitterness of hops that fades to a sweet, albeit dry, finish.
MF/D: light on the tongue, with a smooth, crisp swallow. a decent brew for a hot day.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: on-tap
