To be honest this beer is their standard go to when it comes to pairing a beer with their pizza. While I am not a huge fan of it, it does the trick. Comes out of the gate weak, doesnt have a great finish either. I have had it where it tastes ok, and other times it tastes like a 2 liter of opened pop that had been sitting in the fridge for 2 months. Wish they could get some more consistency from this brew. But hey, the pizza is damn good.

On-tap at the pizzeria:

The beer appeared a light yellow in color that produced a white head that no retention. This might have been due the staff being overwhelmed by the crowd that night and not really caring. The beer also gave off a nice, light malty aroma, as expected for the style. The beer had a really good  taste and is a good example of the style. Well balanced, light feel, very easy to drink, again, as expected from the style. Overall, a good beer.
