A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a faint amount of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted grainy malts with a touch of caramel sweetness and minimal amounts of citrus/lemon + herbal hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of toasted grainy malts, kind of cracker-like with some light hints of caramel sweetness. There is a light flavor of herbal and citrus/lemon zest hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: Definitely a sessionable beer but not a very interesting one, not sure that I would want to have more than one of these in a session. Easy to drink and inoffensive.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bought at Peabodys in Boone price $4 best before 10/13

A: poured a nice golden orange with an off white head that left minimal lacing.

S: Lots of yeast and bread flavors.

T: Kinda fruity, more bread and light malt flavors. A bit of hop bitterness as this warmed up. Very yeasty.

M: Nice mouth feel very creamy with a little bit of carb bite and a full body. Honestly one of the least watery APAs Ive had. Very easy to drink.

O: Its pretty good for a session beer. I would by it again if it was fresher and I had a larger beer budget. Personally I tend to like beers with a Higher ABV and more complexity. I thought this had great flavor and mouth feel for the style however. For me its an added bonus that its brewed in collaboration by a local NC brewery and Peabodys Beer and WIne.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bomber

A - light orangish yellow-copper; thin white head; little retention

S - yeasty, lightly fruity

T - yeast, sweet, fruity, very malty, cereal grains

M - crisp, heavily carbonated, light to medium bodied

This is a decent session beer and has decent flavor. It's highly drinkable, but ultimately forgettable.
