Served on tap into my huge mug of doom.

A- pours a clear shade of yellow with no head whatsoever. Well thats disappointing. It IS really clear though...can see right through it. No lacing, obviously.

S- faint smell, mostly of corn. Uninspiring

T- I'm getting a very, very subtle hit of hops, but I'm mostly getting corn and malts. Blah

M- feel is good, body is nice and thin and has a smooth, creamy texture to it...as cliche and stupid as that sounds

D- drinkable if only because its so nonoffensive. Nothing to get really worked up about in either direction. Its just kinda...there

This had a finger of rocky, bone-white head with good retention. Color remained a golden-yellow, albeit slightly lighter, but still with NE-quality clarity. The nose was a bit more pronounced in terms of its sweetness. Mouthfeel was medium with a more pronounced sweetness than from the N2 pour. Finish was decidedly mild, very smooth. I would ask for the N2 pour first, but this was not a bad second.

On tap at Capones. On Nitro.

Poured a medium and clear golden/yellow color with a very small sized white head. Aromas of some graininess and citrus. Tastes of the same graininess, lighter citrus and a corny/honey sweetness. Thin and somewhat watery body.

On tap at the Harrisburg LBC location.

A-Slightly hazed golden yellow with a medium white head that reduced to a thin cap and left spotty lace.

S-A touch of sweet biscuit and a passing whiff of floral hops. Certainly nothing to excite.

T-A touch of floral hops quickly doused with biscuit malt sweetness. Not really a whole lot going on here, but nothing unpleasant either.

M-Medium-light bodied fairly crisp and sharp. The best feature about this brew. A nice jaunty feel for a summertime drinker.

D-Clean, crisp and smooth. Nothing wrong but nothing very exciting either. A very "safe" beer. I wouldn't turn another down but I wouldn't search out a second. I would like to try it on nitro though....okay, so one more!
