Served on tap at Barcade in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a clear straw yellow in color with very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall bright white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light amounts of lemon/citrus along with some adjunct malts (corn and grain) and a light amount of light fruit (apple) sweetness.

T: Light flavors of cracker and adjunct malts (primarily grain) with some light amounts of sweetness. There are very light notes of lemon/citrus and green apple.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Very easy to drink and definitely sessionable - the best aspect of this beer is the mouthfeel.
