A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a faint amount of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted grainy malts with a touch of caramel sweetness and minimal amounts of citrus/lemon + herbal hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of toasted grainy malts, kind of cracker-like with some light hints of caramel sweetness. There is a light flavor of herbal and citrus/lemon zest hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: Definitely a sessionable beer but not a very interesting one, not sure that I would want to have more than one of these in a session. Easy to drink and inoffensive.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bought at Peabodys in Boone price $4 best before 10/13

A: poured a nice golden orange with an off white head that left minimal lacing.

S: Lots of yeast and bread flavors.

T: Kinda fruity, more bread and light malt flavors. A bit of hop bitterness as this warmed up. Very yeasty.

M: Nice mouth feel very creamy with a little bit of carb bite and a full body. Honestly one of the least watery APAs Ive had. Very easy to drink.

O: Its pretty good for a session beer. I would by it again if it was fresher and I had a larger beer budget. Personally I tend to like beers with a Higher ABV and more complexity. I thought this had great flavor and mouth feel for the style however. For me its an added bonus that its brewed in collaboration by a local NC brewery and Peabodys Beer and WIne.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bomber

A - light orangish yellow-copper; thin white head; little retention

S - yeasty, lightly fruity

T - yeast, sweet, fruity, very malty, cereal grains

M - crisp, heavily carbonated, light to medium bodied

This is a decent session beer and has decent flavor. It's highly drinkable, but ultimately forgettable.

22 oz. bottle that showed up on the doorstep just before Christmas as part of a larger box of goodies from Metalmonk. Opened with dinner last night and poured to a pint glass. Marker ticks on the label edge "...enjoy me before: A[pril] 12"

Tough to find any info on this beer, as it doesn't show up on OHB's; it seems to be a rebirthing of a long-standing session ale once made by Carolina Brewing. As such, no idea on ABV or style other than "Session Beer".

"Born in Boone...Raised by you one bottle at a time"

A: Golden pour with a slight butterscotch-orange tint. Very clear/well-filtered, a look that shows of plenty of small carbonation. Sturdy head, 2-fingers of eggshell cream that drops very slowly, a waning landscape of dunes and craters. Very good lace, sticking bands of glistening suds.

S: Very simple nose. Weak malts that are barely 'bready', more cracker-dry. Floury, too... note that's 'floury', not 'flowery'. Hops? Can't find 'em...

T: Like the aroma, there's a fair amount of maltiness. Fortunately, it's more pronounced: a fresh-baked bread, a cut hay/dry grass quality, spritz of lemon, touch of honey. Flavors aren't particularly bold, but they're balanced. Hops aren't discernible, but they are enough to counteract grains.

M: Soft and creamy... light body. Not much substance, but it's very smooth and finishes clean.

O: A decent 'session' beer, pretty straightforward (boring?) but easy enough to drink; mine disappeared quickly and paired well with a spiced Korean chicken and broccoli dish. I question the validity of the 'APA' designation; sure it's 'American-made', but the stylings are lighter and more 'English' to me. As for ABV, I'm guessing no more than 4.5 or 5% - very much a 'session'/pub ale feel.

Thanks for the chance to try this one, Jeff!
