Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at the Alexandria, Virginia location. Pours a bright, clear yellow color with minimal head and a few bubbles on top as the head settles down. The nose is quite grainy rather than malty with some husk and fairly-strong astringencies. The taste is more grain and maybe a faint hit of some herbal hops. Astringent grain husks rule in this kingdom, though. Off, harsh finish. Light body and pretty far bell average drinkability. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-20-2010

radagast83 (6337) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Draft at Hops Grillhouse & Brewery, Alexandria. Pretty similar to any given pale lager (BMC). Drinkable, but only by so much. Aroma inoffensive and almost non-existent, mild malt flavor, that’s about it.

Yellow pour with a non-retentive head and wash lace. Faint aromas, indistinct. Lightly bodied and thoroughly carbonated, grainy malts with a touch of corn to the tongue. Boring trend starting to form here.
