3.38/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Duckworths in Charlotte, served in a pint glass

Pours a clear light amber/copper color with a small off white head that recedes quickly leaving behind a generous amount of lacing

The nose is slightly weak but not bad. What is there is of floral hops and bits of honey. There is also a nice mild bready aroma

Floral and citrusy hops and bready malts work together to make a fairly well balanced taste that ends with just a slight bit of bitterness. Very simple clean flavor. Light/medium bodied and well carbonated. Slightly slick on the tounge and finishes on the dry side. Not a bad beer, but it won't blow your hair back either. A nice easy to drink APA.

On tap at World of Beer in Raleigh. Served in a pint glass.

A - orangish amber with a thin lacing of soft, white head

S - floral, faintly bready

T - citrusy, fruity, malty, bready, lightly bitter

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is just a refreshing, quaffable, smooth beer. There's good flavor throughout and you can definitely pack a few of these away. It's definitely worth a try especially if you're looking for something refreshing and quaffable.
