On tap at 508. Pours a just clear amber gold with a thin white head. Soft malt, a bit nutty, soft hops. Medium bodied, gritty earth and a touch of malt. Spicy hops on the finish, more malt, a touch of light lemon. Decent and easy drinking, but nothing memorable going on here.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 8/10/12

Aroma: This one has a mostly citrus nose, with some pine, floral notes, and light spice
Appearance: It pours a cloudy gold color with a white head and medium-heavy lace
Flavor: It is light sweet, and light-medium bitter, with citrus, yeast, floral flavor, spice, and light malt
Palate: It has a clean, smooth feel, a medium body, soft carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I felt like this was a really nice beer. It is a true easy drinker with a smooth clean creamy feel. This one was definitely a great session, hence the name i guess...
