On tap at Franklin’s. Pours a nice golden color with a good white head and some lacing. The nose carries some faint pilsner malt along with some floral hops. Belgian yeast in the background. Flavor is somewhat hoppy with a malt backing. Medium body and a semi-dry finish. Pretty good beer.

dmac (4045) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Poured a thin looking piss color under a foamy white head. Aroma of yeast and bread crusts. Flavor isn’t as strong as the atom and seems a bit watered down. Notes of yeast, and bread crusts. Meh it’s drinkable but not much going on.

Draft. Pours golden with a minimal head. Pleasant fruity aroma, apples, honey, light citrus. Flavor is much the same with sweet malt, and a touch of clove. Easy to drink, refreshing and crisp. My new favorite sessioner at Franklins (nevermind the ABV, you can’t taste it...)
