22oz bottle enjoyed on vacation... (maybe that's why my scores are so much higher than the avg?)

Pours with a light head that fades to film, over a chill-hazed gold color body.

Aromas of orange, cardboard, biscuit, and a citrusy zest.

Flavors of orange and grapefuity hops. Nicely balanced with whole grain bready malts.

Mouthfeel is crisp, and well carbonated overall.

Smooth drinking and enjoyable. Pick some up if you're in the OBX!

tap at the brewery

Pours a light honey gold, white lacing for a head.

Smells of light sugar sweet malt.

The flavor is dry and crisp, a simple barley malt with some very mild dry hops in the finish.

Medium body with a sting of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Solid lager, light and crisp. Drinks easily. Likable enough and would pair with food fine, this beer is inferior to the Kolsch. It's still fine, but not quite the excellent example of its style that the Kolsch is, nor is it as good against the Kolsch beer-to-beer.

Pours a pale straw yellow body with vigorous bubbles of carbonation dancing up to the feather-white head that quickly dissipates to only a hint of lacing.

Nice, clean malt aroma accompanied by faint spicy hop notes as well as wheat and citrus zest.

The flavor leaves a bit to be desired, but consists of similar citrus zest, grainy malt, and a touch of sweetness, but as it warms the carbonation almost seems to detract from the flavor.

This beer is lighter in body and although the carbonation is generous, it is not nearly what I had expected based off of the appearance.

As this beer warms it lacks some of the flavor character and crisp mouthfeel that some of its counterparts possess, however it does start off very nice and is worth a sample.

Bought a 22-oz bottle on the way back from OBX. Poured into a Prima Pils glass. Appears dark gold, clear with nice head that eventually fades. Good carbonation. Smells a touch sweet due to Pils malt. Clean & crisp. Low noble hop character. Subtle spiciness. Tastes clean with sweet pils malt. Perhaps a tad too heavier than I'd prefer. Overall, a very solid helles. Glad to have tried and would drink again.

Had this beer at Cosmos' pizza in Corolla, the best restaraunt in Corolla serious.

A straw colored brew with ample head but little carbonation.
Aroma was grassy and grainy malts, typical lager here.

Taste was crisp and refreshing with moderate levels of biscuit malts and some tart lemon.
Hops are low and balanced the malts nicely I think.

Had a medium mouthfeel some bitterness and some grainy aftertaste.

A good beer alittle light in flavor but still good.
