Pours clear orange-amber with a large frothy, foamy off-white head. The aroma is pure hops... grassy and earthy. The taste is both subtley sweet and dry in almost perfect balance... the hops are very present, but not overwhelming, and not very bitter at all. I suggest pouring into a wide-mouth glass, like a British pint glass, so you can get your nose into it as you drink to soak up the hop aroma.
All in all, an enjoyable brew... not a big beer, but a well-crafted enjoyable beer that has good balance, some complexity, but is approachable and drinkable for those times when you want a good lager with real flavor... a lager that might even win over your "lite-beer" drinking friends.

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
