11.2 fl oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams tasting glass.

A - Pouring down the center of the glass produces about 2 inches of white head that swiftly fades to a light ribbon. Once poured, the beer has a pale yellow color, is completely clear and has an almost non-existent carbonation. Light, yet lasting, lacing.

S - Not a lot going on in the aroma. Light citrus with a musty, biscuity touch.

T - Tastes of malt, bread, and grain with a barely noticeable hint of hops .

M - Light bodied with mild carbonation.

O - A very clean, crisp, refreshing beer. I keep this one around for when I'm in the mood for something very light. Have received quite positive feedback from several non-craft beer drinkers so this seems to be a nice gateway beer.
