I just couldn’t get into this one. Maybe I was just expecting something a bit different, but this just fell flat. Initially, a nice grassy hop aroma that was completely gone about 5 minutes after the pour. Body was fairly full for such a light beer (light copper color, crystal clear) which was a pleasant surprise. Very one demensional with nothing really coming forward to complement the bready/toffee malt except a very slight bitter finish. ’Extra crisp, extra clean, extraordinary!’ reads the caption on the bottle. Well, not in my book.

This is a very good beer and a great example of a true microbrew. Anyone who likes Pale Ales, will like this one.

The more I drink this, the more I like it. I think they have improved this beer over time.

Decent flavor but not hoppy enough (for someone who likes their pale ales hoppy). Still it’s quite drinkable and refreshing (which is important if your in Georgia ungodly heat).

This beer must be quaffed on tap. It is very good.
