First had: on tap at Portsmouth Brewery

Poured a darker brownish-amber color with a small cap of off-white head that retained as a bubbly collar. Aroma was light, bready malts, citrus pulp, light spice. Up front the taste brought in bready malts, grass, light citrus bitterness, with a light peppery sensation prickling the palate about midway through. Body was medium, the flavor was rather light but not quite thin, carbonation moderate, higher alcohol well-hidden. An enjoyable brew overall, but it really didn't come off as great, compared to other beers of the style.
