Pours a clear golden color with a ring of white lace. Aroma of biscuity malt and citrus. Good subtle flavor of biscuity and grainy malt with citrus. Light body with a dry mouthfeel and prickly carbonation.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 A glimmer of apricot, a shimmer of herbal hops in dimmer caramel cereal sweetness...All is balanced and drinkable, but quite forgettable for the style...

I’ll be the first to rate this one; had it on tap at the Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME. Medium gold colored lager with medium carbonation, mildly hoppy aroma. Taste was somewhat light with a sufficient dose of malt (crystal?) and a well balanced yet subtle hop bitterness, quick and non-descript finish. High ABV is a plus.
