I had this on tap and from the bottle. Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. It pours a very light straw color. A 3 inch almost white head reduces to a nice lacing. Carbonation is definitely visible.

The aroma is grains with an almost grassy component. The wheat is there and I think I'm picking up just a bit of apple.

The taste is starts with a malty/wheaty note and then I pick up more of a grassy/noble hops presence. Interesting lemon component at the end.

The mouthfeel is light bodied, clean and crisp. Carbonation is slightly elevated, but that seems to balance the flavor. A very nice dryness lingers at the finish and there is perhaps just a hint of sour bite.

This is a solid beer. It is not my preferred style and I definitely enjoyed this. The taste that I had at the brewery was solid and this one, bottled on 8/10/11 was good as well. It is a nice, light, and easy beer to drink.

Finally was able to find this one during a trip to the Upstate last weekend. Bottled on 12/21/11. Poured into a stemmed lager glass.

Pours a slightly-hazy pale gold with a lusciously thick bone-white head. Great retention. Sticky sip rings cling to the glass. The nose is sharp with grassy notes, lemon-lime, floral hops. Body is effervescent and lively. Sweet citrus flavors join arms with a subtle green hop twang that is lip-smackingly good. This beer errs on the mild side, but it is packed full of flavor regardless. Refreshing and tasty. Loved this one.

Had a couple cans of this while in Charleston, SC. A solid, very easy drinking beer. Citrus notes, fruity malts, earthy malts, grass, oak, spice, and some floral notes. Could crush a few of these.
