On-tap at Beer Works Fenway

A: The beer pours a pale golden color with a short lived white head.

S: A rather bland nose without much in the way of hops or malt. Some cereal grains and corn, perhaps a touch of bread. There are some grassy hop notes to it as well.

T: Just very watery and bland. As with the aroma, maybe some corn and cereal grain flavor. The flavor does have a bit more sweetness than the aroma, but it's still lacking substance.

M: Light in body with medium carbonation.

O: Another typical blonde ale from a brewpub to appeal to the light beer drinker.

Poured on-tap at Canal Street, and served in a pint glass. The beer is almost clear, with a slightly yellow tinted coloring, and a whispy film covering most of the beer's surface. Crystal clear and vibrant. Roasty notes on the aroma, but very light. The flavors are a bit richer than the smells, with a slightly nutty sweet character. Smooth and round in mouth, with a slight linger. The aftertaste is sour and tangy, with a sharp, almost astringent finish. Not bad at all.
