Typical bar draft. Odorless, okay lacing, hoppy, forgetable taste. Pasty aftertaste left a film on my tongue.

Tap...light bodied beer with a clean, crisp taste and a decent bite on the finish. Nice for mowing the lawn.

Gold pour. White head. Meh, I guess it goes well with wings. Light hops, biscuity malt, nothing amazing.

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 18, 2015
On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, South Burlington, VT. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a super light yellow complexion with a good transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a fast pace. There was no head. The smell had some sweet dried grassiness, but that’s about it. The taste was somewhat bitter with a dried grassy edge. On the palate, this was really light, super sessionable, carbonation felt good. Overall, eh, low key, non-offensive, so, one could pound it all day long if they wanted to. Me, got better once the garlic spice wings came.

Draft at a Buffalo Wild Wings. Citrus and a bit of pine on the aroma. Clear golden color with a thick froth of white head. Fairly coating lacework. Decent hop bitterness. Malt backbone is almost unnoticeable in the flavor. Mouthfeel is okay. A little thin, watery. Finishes crisp and dry. Better than I expected it to be. Probably a perfect gateway IPA for the light beer drinking crowd.

Draft at hobby Buffalo wild wings... Nose is caramel, grainy malts, and light hops... Pours a clear caramel orange color, lasting head, heavy lace... Tastes much the same simple malty sweetness and light hops... Light body and super easy drinking... A thirst quenching, toned down macro-style micro. Basically the Bud of ales. Why is this an APA on here? More like an Amber I’d say.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served clear deep amber color with a small head of one finger height. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is light overall consisting of a bready smell as well as some caramel aromas. With these smells comes a light toffee and earthy smell. Taste – The taste begins with a lightly toasted bready flavor with a touch of a grain and some caramel. Along with these tastes comes some other flavors of a light toffee. As the taste moves forward the toffee and caramel fade and are replaced by a little bit of molasses. Along with these tastes, other flavors of an earthy flavor and a little bit of grass come at the end, to leave a lighter roasted and easy going amber taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher to average side. For the style it is rather nice and makes for a rather easy drinker overall. Overall – A pretty decent amber brew that drinks easy and has a mild but enjoyable flavor profile.

At BWWW. Pours golden yellow with a 12 mm white head. Initial light wheat bread taste. Very little hop taste upfront but a mild mild hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
