3.5/5 rDev +12.2%
A big off white head settles into a nice lacing above a clear yellowish farm honey colored beer.
Light caramel malts and light earthy to grassy hops aroma.
A lightly roasted caramel malt taste that brings with it some light bitterness from the hops.
A light dry aftertaste with slight caramel notes on this medium bodied beer.
Seems comparable to Newcastle but quite a bitter better for having the same kinda taste to it.

3.73/5 rDev +19.6%
Tasted On: 05-28-2012
Freshness: Best by August 2012
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Blackstone pint glass
Purchased: 6-pack from Midtown, Nashville
A: Golden-yellow color. Bright clarity shows a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom of the glass. The head is off-white and tall, at 4 fingers, with very good retention and lace.
S: Spicy hop aromas with reminders of grass, hay and straw.
T: The spicy hops carry over into the taste, giving this beer a moderate amount of bitterness. Fairly dry and not sweet.
M: Carbonation is on the high end, with a light to medium body. Finishes bitter and on the dry side.
O: I found this to be a crisp and refreshing summer ale.
