(Draught) pours amber with nice lasting head and lacing. Nose is sweet malt and crisp hops. Taste is very crisp, sweet malts mix well with the low amount of hops. This is like a nicer Boston Lager. Palette has a slightly odd bitter linger but still good. Enjoyable and refreshing.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Pretty amber pour. Nice flavor but it still maintained the metallic aftertaste typical of microbrews.3.6
RE-RATE 1/19/11 Tap at the Addison Saucer. Pours a clear, amber orange color with a very small head. Aroma is dry and grainy with some light caramel Malts. Flavor is dry, with a earthy, leafy flavor. Some sweet malts kick through near the end but finishes with a dry bitterness that isn’t too welcoming. Great till the finish.
