Served in a glass at The '6 House Pub in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, light golden color with a white head displaying strong retention and decent lacing.
S: Aromas of lime citrus grass and barley grain. Slightly tart.
T: Elements of lemon citrus, grassi- and graininess. Has a tart aftertaste but drinks pretty cleanly. Bitterness slightly more evident as in warms.
M: Light bodied with solid effervescence. Very creamy mouthfeel.
O: At first, I though it resembled a Dortmunder, but definitely an APA. Drinks easily, though it was well designed and executed.

Nice color. Not a very noticeable sent. Light and crisp. Maybe a bit of a spicy finish

Nice hazy mango-yellow blush with a really nice looking creamy cap of 1 finger. Just hangs there like cappuccino foam. I love it.

Aroma of cantaloupe and fresh cling peaches, slight orange, bread.

Flavor is candy-like, has a lot of bread quality to it; much like an orange muffin.

Feel is crisp and clean, I like it.

Overall, if I hadn't spilled 90% of the beer before finishing the review, I think I'd have been able to more accurately assess this beer. But from what little sample I have here, I can honestly say I like it, that's all.

Strong floral and earthy hop aroma, pours a slightly hazy light straw with a thin white head. Light body, with the floral notes continuing in the flavor, there's a touch of sweet malt notes, reminiscent of a pilsner. As an APA, I feel it falls a little short in that category. It's not bad, just missing the hop punch I look for in the style.

I regretted buying this bomber halfway through my first sip. zero head. Smells like American lager horse piss. Tastes 2 years old (couldn't find date on bottle). Just awful all around. Wouldn't drink this for free.

From the bottle, it pours a light amber with a just off white head. Lighted toasted malt scent in the nose with some slight piney scent. TaStephen follows nose. Pleasant.
