Pours a medium-light gold, a little hazy, with a nice little cap of creamier white head that leaves small sticky lacing. The aroma doesn't exist beyond faint whiffs of grain. The taste is much the same, bordering into sweet. The body has a nice weight to it, mostly smooth with just a hint of carbonation.

Not much hop presence on the nose, almost lagered scent on the nose. Nothing too memorable about this one, but has the potential to be an everyday ale. Bottled from grocer in King of Prussia.

Pours a light golden yellow with moderate lacing. The smell is slightly malty with sweet citrus.
Taste of malty tart citrus with a bitter aftertaste.
