Great color, great lacing. Aroma is ambiguous. Taste is mostly dry. A tad hoppy. It's not a sweet cream ale; that's for sure!

Poured on-tap at the Cigar City Brewing tasting room in Tampa. The beer was served in a pint glass, and it poured a crystal clear, light yellow coloring with a slim film of head. The aromas is crisp, toasty, and slightly sour. Mid-bodied, with a decent lacing on the glass while you drink. Harshly sour flavor, with a drying feel from the hops. Difficult to palate. The aftertaste is a harsh muddle of overtart and bitter. The beer has an astringent and puckering finish. Odd characteristics for the style.
