Bottle poured into a standard pint glass.
Orange, but faint, in color. Some light tan head. Little lacing. Average.
Smells of malt, nice, and not sweet.
Tastes a bit nutty and somewhat malty. It has a nice flavor.
It's very smooth, though it seems to warm up quickly. Some body, pretty good mouthfeel overall.
Overall, this is an above average beer. Very nice. Maybe better for the fall though.
Serving type: bottle

Pint on tap at John Henry's in Long Beach, N.Y.
Appearance: It's an amber/copper color with heavy carbonation and a half-inch white head that recedes swiftly.
Aroma: Bready malts are up front, with some piny hops and caramel malts. Also, unsurprisingly, there's a note of buttery toast. Some grassiness, too.
Taste: Tasty. Really a perfect all-seasons lager. Smooth, crisp and refreshing, with enough complexity to keep you interested. Hop bitterness and alcohol are muted, while malts are very forward. Pretty much a perfect American lager. I had this alongside a terrific veggie burger, fries and a pickle and practically felt like singing God Bless America; tied the whole thing together in star-spangled glory.
Mouthfeel: The amount of body is spot-on. Some density, but far from heavy.
Overall: Excellent. A lager for folks who usually get bored by lagers. Also a lager for people who love lagers. There's everything to like about this, and no discernible flaws. Let's see what happens after the Anheuser-Busch acquisition.
Serving type: on-tap
