The hype that accompanies this beer almost required me to sample it when I saw it on-tap at one of my favorite watering holes.

Appearance is a light copper with less than a finger of head. The nose is quite mild in general; perhaps there was a hint of citrus. The flavor profile is light with a mild bitterness on the finish. This offering would make for a very fine session beer during warmer months, but it does not come close to living up to the hype.
