Thanks to my best man, Chris, for bringing this back from North Carolina!

Pours a bright gold with a short white head.

Sweet, grape-like aroma with a light citrus hop note.

I see why the brewery calls this lager-like: it's crisp and grainy with a big similarity to a Kolsch. Light sweetness.

Almost creamy body.

Overall a very nice brew; I see why it's their flagship.

Very clear gold-amber colored beer with a modest white head. Aroma is basic and lagery. Light lemon, floral, fresh grain, light malt. Taste is sweeter than usual, floral, and also lightly lemony. Smooth texture....a little bit syrupy. Drinkability is ok.

Super clear yellow gold with a slim, creamy covering on the surface. Floral, lemony aroma over some creamy-like pale malty sweetness. Soft, toasty, sweet malts and light citrusy hops in the mouth. Not much to it really. A little caramel and a lager-like quality in the end. Too sweet to be as refreshing as they proclaim...seems under attenuated for the style. Not bad, not good.

Not a bad beer but I think the Noon Day IPA should be their flagship brew!!!!! Pours a hazy dull gold color with a small white head that fades fast. Thin rings of light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapes and some citrus. Much more malty than hoppy. Flavor is more of the same. A light citrusy brew with some fruity flavor (grapes) and a malty backbone. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat crisp. A bit high in abv to be a session beer, but a good summertime thirst quencher.
