From notes 8/27/11

Pours a golden copper with ¼” of head that fades quickly to a thin lacing. Smells a bit musty with faint wheat notes and a little faint yeasty spice coming through. Taste is faint wheat, slightly yeasty, and just a hint of metal. Mouthfeel is crisp, smooth, and light.

A very sessionable beer, but a forgettable beer overall.

First had: on tap at Foothills

Pale yellow pour, clear, with bubbly carbonation, and a small white head; minimal retention and lacing. Light aroma, toasted grains and not much else. Sweet pale malt flavor, toasted grains, light citrusy hops bringing a slight bitterness. Light body, drinks easy enough, but lacks character (aka flavor).

12 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head glass

A - pale straw with a small head which dissipates quickly, leaving only a small ring, but with some lacing.

S - all I got on the nose was a bready smell....but it was faint.

T - kind of a one dimensional flavor sort of piney with a dry metallic finish.

M - thin and watery.

O - easy to drink, but completely unimpressive.

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours golden-straw colored with a semi-durable white head.
Light malty and yeasty aroma with a touch of citrus. Flavor follows. Clean and refreshing.

Feel: light body but not watery; crisp, medium carbonation; semi-dry finish.
