Clearish honey color. Smells like crisp apples. Fruity undertones. Good foamy head. Nothing special really, but good to drink if you donít want to think about the beer you are drinking. It had an apple Jolly Rancher taste with no apple flavor if that makes any kind of sense at all.

12 ounce bottle and poured into a pint glass. It is a light brown colored beer and very clear with lots of bubbles, very inviting. It formed a small head when poured into the glass that becomes a constant layer of foam. Spotted lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is a light molasses. The taste is the same on the front end, but it finishes with a nice hop bite. The is a very refreshing brew and I could sit around and drink a bunch of them.

Nice and drinkable. Would have been better, but just a bit too much on the floral taste to suit me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 Re-rate based on can sent by Ty5592. Hazy coppery body, thick, puffy off-white head. Toasty nose with sharp herbal hops. Bitter, bready body, with sharp herbal, spicy hops complementing toasty, sweet malts. Long, bitter, somewhat metallic finish. Certainly much better this time around than my first sample on tap.
On tap at Loganís Alley, Grand Rapids. Blonde-golden body, thin off-white head. The aroma and body were biscuity, toasty, and cerealy, with abundant buttered breads (diacetyl notes) and an earthy hops finish. This was relatively fresh beer but seemed rather stale and bland. Iím not impressed. 5-3-5-2-9 (2.4).
