Sweet, fruity, light, and low ABV; everything I'm not looking for in a beer, somehow works in this bottle. It all balances out with a nice hoppy taste and almost bitter finish. Hope to see this one back in Floyds rotation soon.

Pours a mixture of gold, yellow and light orange, more substance than your traditional mild ale, drops some 1/4" white head. Aroma fit the mild bill with an extra dose of hops for style.

Taste was like a hybrid between the session pale ale and mild. Somewhere between the FFF xtra pale ale and alpha king in a smaller version. Its pretty easy drinking on those hot and/or humid days. Otherwise, there's a million more pungent hoppy beers from FFF that you can get into if you choose, but there's nothing wrong with this one at all.

This is one of my favorite session beers. When I see it available in NE Wisconsin (which is rare) I immediately grab a couple 6 packs because I know I will not be drinking just one.
