On tap at the Pensacola location pouring up clear gold with full bright white head and some lacing. The aroma is sweet, floral and then a touch grainy. The taste brings forward notes of grain, corn and then floral hops. By midway and into the finish just a bit of spicy and floral hop bitterness is noticeable for a moment or two.

2/3/11. On tap at the Destin location. Clear golden pour with a fizz of white head. Horrifying sweet buttery aroma with a terrible, terrible buttery cereal filled flavor. This is like Wheaties drizzled in butterscotch syrup. This is terrible.
