On tap at brewpub:
Pours nice and clear light golden. Trickles of bubbles rise to support a decent lace producing white head.

Nose is light with grain, grass, and a bit of a sweet accent. Has an impression of a slightly more bitter adjunct lager.

Taste when cold (ice as they served it) was slightly grassy bitter but not much else. Warmth brings a little more bitterness along with some grain and more adjunct lager sweet notes.

Feel isn't too smooth on this light beer, the carbonation is fairly prickly.

A simple drinking beer, not easy to love, but hard to hate. It's a little better and a bit more bitter than the average AAL.

Apparently this beer is not retired, because I just had it over at the Merrifield location.

A: Mildly cloudy, straw color, with a light foamy head that dissipated within seconds.

S: Faint puffs of yeast, with a bit of sweet bread on the forefront.

T: Thin-bodied, with a bit of a Corona-like quality. This sort of tasted like the fizzy yellow stuff that Stone Brewing always warns us about... but with a little more fruitiness than that.

M: Cool whip type creaminess, well carbonated, and with a pleasant lingering sweetness. The lacing was moderate.

O: Not bad, not great... somewhere in between. I would not seek this one out again.
