Draught @ New York Sports Bar, JFK airport

Pours orange with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruits, pine, citrus and grass. Taste is smooth, watery and slightly fruity with hints of hops. Finish is slightly crisp and malty with some citrusy hops. Quite easy going.

kevinator (1328) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pretty average. Mild hop aroma. Copper and golden color with a white head. Medium to light palate with big carbonation. Medium to mild hop bitterness up front with an decent malt background. Would I choose their over a bland beer? Of course, but this is still a middle-of-the-road beer.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 It’s a little better on tap . Good representation of an English style IPA and a nice change of pace. Malty, moderate hop aromas and bitterness. Definitely can be a session ale. Goes well with savory comfort foods. Originally rated this lower but the bottle was old. Had a fresher bottle and have to admit I was wrong. Also a good value.

Excellent beer. It is not my favorite, or even close. It is just a good beer to sit down and drink with some friends. You don’t covert this beer, you just drink it. You enjoy it. Not quite a session beer, but it’s good for any occasion.
