Had on tap last night at Sessions here in Greensboro.Poured a copper/bronze color with a thinner white head atop.Aromas were light with mild doughy sweetness and fruity esters.Grainy with a medium feel to it the flavors were lightly sweet with a bit of caramel,a decent shot of leafy sharp hops in the finish.No frills but not a bad beer,I have had better of the style though.

On tap at Jack of the Wood in Asheville

A - clear, light amber with a big, soft, white head that has great retention

S - heavy citrus, faint caramel

T - a bit soapy at first, citrus and mild caramel

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a decent beer. The flavors are quite mild and it's to style so nothing interesting to report. It was good to try a beer from an NC brewery I had never tried before.
