40F in a pint glass on tap
A- pale copper, lots of bubbles but no head
S- nearly no aroma
T- soapy and mildly peaty
M - thin and watery
D- at first I said forget about this. But after talking with other folks later, I think the poor performance was all the fault of the serving method. Got it at Red Robin and the tender put it in a frosted glass. I'm betting that the glass was poorly rinsed and gained a lot of condensation when pulled out of the cooler. I wanted to do a retest before leaving New England but it just wasn't meant to be. So take my review with a grain of salt.
Serving type: on-tap

I have had growlers of this here in RI that were spoiled (see review above), but this is as delicious as I remember it to be! When I have brought this to parties - and it is fresh/unspoiled - it has always been a favorite among a fairly sophisticated group of beer drinkers.
Light, slightly citrus, but not watery flavor with the yeastiness I expect fresh beer to have. Goes down easily.
Serving type: growler
