12 oz bottle, Whole Foods. Pale golden pour, half-finger head disappears into completely nothing; very light lacing. Aroma shows notable hops; bread and light wood. Flavor doughy with significant bitterness for such a light beer; the 8% is very evident and is sharp and harsh rather than pleasantly warm. Light, lively body. Too much alcohol for such a light beer.

coolfunnj (323) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2013
aroma of mostly caramel malts and lager yeastiness..clear golden/reddish amber with pure white head that dissipates as it warms...taste brings out the bitter and spicy quality along with the forementioned malty base..palate..medium bodied good carbonation slightly bitter finish..overall..the only other beer ive tried for this style is anchor steam this isa touch maltier and stronger,however,it is drinkable and refreshing..let me put it this way if you like anchor steam,sam adams boston,or even michelob youll like this just as much maybe more

4/11/13. On tap at Aardwolf. Clear light amber pour with a small khaki head. Husky, doughy, malty aroma and flavor with a touch of acidity/sourness going on in there as well along with a hint of booziness. Not bad.

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2013
9oz shorty on tap at Yard House ($3.50). Clear golden color. Good one-finger thick off-white head. Bigger body. Nice spread of lace. Good head retention. Smooth, light-to-moderate carbonation. Lightly syrupy in the texture, but mostly dry overall. Interesting malt aroma.. Pretty clean and bready. Some moderate hip. Some fruit flavor that is hard to pin down.. Some pear, white grape, light citrus. Taste is a little bitter. Some light sweet bite in the finish, but nothing too bad. Interesting stuff. Never had a "double uncommon" before. Im a little fascinated by it
