Had a glass of this beer at the Nor'East Beer Garden in Provincetown, best lager I've ever had and top 10 beer. Awesome beer. Well balanced, perfectly hopped, sweet malt and corn backbone, crisp and refreshing. I wish this was available in 4 or 6 packs along the other distributed bruery beers.

2.58/5  rDev -39.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, bright yellow in color, clear

Smell: pithy citrus rind

Taste: grain, light butter, and tropical fruit hops

Mouthfeel: light body, slightly bitter, medium carbonation

Overall: Not what I was expecting. This had a buttery grainy taste to it that was not appealing. I usually like Bruery beers, but this did not come together for me. I will be passing on this.
