Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of fruity, clean yeast esters and light bread malts. Crisp and refreshing, good for the style.

5oz sample from honeymoon. This is a style that usually under-performs for American brewers. This one is example. The aroma and flavors are bland and flat. Given the line-up on tap there is a better beer for every situation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clean clear dark yellow. Some bready malt in the note. Nice spicy hop finish. But suffers from a sewery overtone, that is likely unclean lines. Note to brewer: Just because your crowds are nearly guaranteed due to your placement in a tourist destination does not mean that mediocrity in your beers/food/service are ok. Step it up.
