As a Connecticut resident I love New England Brewery. It's close by and I love to bring friends by to see the small, but ambitious location. The color is golden with a great foam. It's refreshing yet still has ample body to be drank alone. The hints of citrus on the end balance well with the wheaty taste in the beginning. We paired it with light Italian and were very happy with how well the beer paired. The price point on a four pack is pretty fair and the availability in stores inside CT is very nice. Everyone we turn on to this beer keeps coming back for more. While some beers tend to give either a love or hate reaction, this one is almost guaranteed to appease almost anyone's palate. On a side note, absolutely love the name and the artwork on the side of the can.

Growler from the brewery and opened after one day.
Poured a cloudy deep gold and a sticky spotty lace on the whole glass. Nose has a bit of tart citrus grapefruit and banana with a bit of toasted biscuit yeastiness. The taste is bold with an upfront hit of tart acidity that is then overwhelmed by a farmhouse earthiness. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and a medium thickness that finishes nice and dry

Overall one of my favorites in category and from nebco. Easily a must buy again
