Stopped by a neat little pizza joint in Greensboro, The Corner Slice, and saw they had this one on tap amongst other decent offerings. Thought this would go well with a nice meaty pizza.
Came out a deep copper with a frothy white head on top. This head looks like a nitro-pour with its creamy look. Sticks around and leaves plenty of sip rings on the glass. The nose is basic with floral hops, fruity character, alcohol.
Smooth feel. Good carbonation level. Clean and simple is the order of the day with this one. Mild bitterness from the hops, but they don't just add bitterness. They impart a nice flavor as well. A bit of pale fruits round it out, giving this a well balanced profile. This is a nice simple beer that I think is the perfect beer to pair with any food. Glad I got this one.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a pint glass, this is a walnut-colored beer, which developed a good half-inch of persistent foam on top. Good malt aroma--rather bread-crusty with a caramel hint. I expected more malt in the taste--it's there, but the moderately high bitterness cuts into it a bit. Not much hop flavor, and it's very clean, yeast-wise. A quite drinkable beer, but the taste isn't all that interesting.
