COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to celebrate Billtowns 200th birthday this lightly colored ale has a delicate floral aroma and flavor reminiscent of Williamsports first breweries. This beer is clean and crisp with just a touch of lingering sweetness leading to a dry, balanced finish.

Clear straw body with minimal white head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral, some cereal, lemon, light grassy. Taste is moderately sweet, lemon, grassy, honey. Light acidity, light-medium body. Seems like it might have developed an infection -- wish I could have tried it when Clark did.

Draught pint at the brewpub with SuIIy on 4/8/06
Utterly clear golden-blonde ale, with just a ever-so-slight hint of copper. Fizzy white head quickly recedes to cover and then ring and then nothing, no lacing (Head retention did not seem to be a strong point at Bullfrog). Fair amount of bubbles rising in the liquid.
The nose is dry, very crisp and borderline carbonic, but warming allows pils malts and almost six-row huskiness to emerge. Hops appear from the onset and are a welcome presence. Floral, light grassiness and some dried, basil-like herb notes. Clean, though, with no powderiness, vanilla, dms or whatnot.
Flavor is snappy and quickly effervescent. Crisp yeast and heavy carbonation bite at the palate, while light honey and hay-like maltiness is minimal, though importantly, not lacking. Hops are flowery, herbal and quite apparent again. There is certainly some water to this, and obviously it wasnt boiled very long, but it is still quite refreshing and clean. Upon warming, I found light cideriness to be the extent of the "off" notes, if you could even call it that (though it does interrupt the delicate hops and dosent work with the honey-grain maltiness). No alcohol apparent, and I was shocked to see it was 6% abv. A tremendously refreshing golden ale-lager hybrid.
