look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Deep golden straw with a big, fluffy white head that lasted for several minutes before dropping.

Hints of honey and hops with a whiff of green apple and fresh cut grass.

Fresh cut lawn and green apples dominated the palate with hints of honey sweetness. This batch was ripe with acetaldehyde. Honey just right. Not overpowering or cloying.

Medium body with a soft and creamy feel. Smooth and drinkable.

On tap at the Strange Brew.

A - Straw colored with no discernible head. Constantly carbonating bubbles failed to produce even a thin rim around the glass.

S - Nutty nose with no hop or malt smell to it. There was a mild sweetness that I wouldn't have placed as honey unless I had known.

T - Nuttiness comes through again. The beer is neither heavy on malts or hops. There is again, a mild sweet character to the beer. There is nothing that stands out as impressive, but there's nothing notably lacking either.

M/D - The beer was quite refreshing in the mouthfeel department, and was likewise very drinkable. It went down quick but I didn't feel like having another right away.

Rapscallion is an interesting light-flavored beer. It is neither outstanding or revolting, and as such, it's just a slightly above average pale ale.

I loved this beer! It is and has been my go to beer for a while now. I'm very happy anytime that I can find it on draft. Very cool!! I always recommend it to my friends and drink it at every chance I get. That's why I gave it such a high rating. I truly absolutely enjoy this beer

Lovely clear pour, almost no head. Honey much more apparen in the nose than the taste. Crisp, light tasting, but falls flat after first sip. Note: I had a cold on the day I tried this, so when I make an effort to smell it, it had a tantalizing nose, but the taste is uninspiring. Tempted not to finish.

Had this on tap at the Squealing Pig in Providencetown, MA. Served in a pint glass, cool.

A-dark gold body and a thick creamy white head.

S-sweet wildflower honey smell, faint grain and honey.

T-honey front and strong, grainy finish.

M-light.

D-very nice and sessionable. Nice to taste a flavored beer that is balanced between flavoring and beer. I would drink this again.

On-tap 6/20/09 at The Penalty Box in Providence, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a decent lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of citrus, honey, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste is decently balanced with sweet flavors of citrus, caramel and just a touch of honey. There's a nice hops bitterness that follows and isn't over-powering. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, although it might not be the best pale ale out there, this is a good milder beer to drink for a long time.
