Picked this up while in the area of the brewery on a visit to the Southland. Has a sweet, light hops flavor.

As soon as I poured this beer I was impressed. Bright yellow with a small white head. The taste was biscuity and refreshing. This would be a fantastic summer beer. Too bad it's a Georgia only beer.

From the bottle, it pours a lovely golden amber with a moderately sized tan head. Scent as one would expect, taste as well. Easy to drink and enjoyable.
