12 ounce bottle, no dating on the bottle/label that I noticed. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready/grainy malt and a bit of lemon peel. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some light peppery spice and grassiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick, crisp and easy enough to drink. It's certainly a lot more flavorful than a lot of light lagers that I've tried in the past. If you're in the mood for this style of beer, it's definitely worth picking up. I bought a single, and I was pleasantly surprised with it. $0.75 a bottle at the Lancaster Ameristop.

On tap at the brewpub.
A very light beer without much flavor and limited aroma. Still very well crafted and drinkable. Aroma has more hops than malt. Flavor is lightly sweet with nearly as much light malt as light hops. Some lingering, hoppy aftertaste. Commendable for style.
