A: It's a pretty beer, nice amber with a bit of red in it. The head disappeared almost immediately leaving very little lacing on the glass.

S: It doesn't have a strong scent to it. You pick up some grain notes and some hops.

T: It has a great middle-level flavor, not too dark or too light. The grain is readily present along with citrus and some caramel and sweeter tones. It has some hop notes, but not much in the way of bitterness. It's a very drinkable beer without being pedestrian.

M: This is where the beer really takes no prisoners. It's sooth with the exact right consistency. It's carbonated, but not overly so. It goes down well and doesn't tickle the throat too much. It feels refreshing.

I got this beer at the Continental Tavern in Yardley, PA not knowing what to expect. I was taken aback immediately by the two highest qualities of this beer: its craftsmanship and its drinkability. This beer is incredibly easy to enjoy and is downright tasty (as opposed to savory). I will definitely look out for this ale next time I see it.
