Can at The Crab Shack, Tybee Island, GA

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down and left a patch of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light aromas of cracker malts are present in the nose along with notes of lemons.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of yeast and grainy malts.
M: It feels light-bodies in the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is easy to drink given it’s light body nature and goes down very easily. It could make for a nice beach beer.

Tried it last night at a little hole-in-the-wall joint in Savannah. Obviously came to the table a while after it was poured, no head. Mild citrus notes, strong grain notes in the aftertaste. Feel is super carbonated, not a huge fan of that. Overall, I’m on the fence.

Taste: a crisp citrus hop, some wheat like grain notes. Citrus, fruity nose. Gold, hazy, big foamy head with a broken lattice of lace. Medium to Med/lite body. Summertime ale. 17 IBUs

Poured from a can with an unreadable date. The beer pours a murky, light tan with tons of brown floaties. The head is one-finger, fluffy, and white. It disappated fairly quickly leaving minimal lacing.

The smell is bread, malt, and something slighty citrusy.

The taste is bready then fades to a honey flavor on the end. It's very unique to me. There is note of grass and earthiness also.

The mouthfeel is medium/heavy carbonation and medium body, as expected.

Overall it's a pretty good beer. I can see enjoying one looking at the ocean on the island.

Draft at Hooters in Atlanta, GA.

THe beer is transparent and light golden with an inch of frothy white head. Nice, ready, grainy aroma. Malty with slight fruity sweetness. Quaffable and pairs nicely with spicy wings. Mild bitterness. Pretty good.

Poured from the tap at into a pint glass at Tybee Island. The appearance is a slightly murky pale amber with a small white head. The aroma is hop driven. The taste is big on citrus with a mild hop finish.

Cold is best with this Kolsch style ale. Perfect when heavy drinking on a hot day at the beach is necessary. It is similar to mass produced domestics. Looks blonde, but the smell & first taste made me wonder why I didn't choose a more flavorful option. After finishing the first glass, I did enjoy. Keep cold!
