Had on tap at Howards pub in Ocracoke. Pours a nice amber/ orange color- white head disappates immediately. Light and refreshing on the palate- feels like a amber summer beer. Lots of sweetness from the malts- not much hoppiness or finsih to it. Pretty inoffensive- interesting that all the lighter beer drinkers in the crowd chose this from the tap list. Good crossover/ sesssion beer. Might be nice at a summer bbq instead of the usual mass produced offererings. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel and toffee nose, with a metallic tinge. Cloudy orange, thick yellow head, poor retention. Lightly sweet unmalted grain initially, tinny at midpalate. Finishes more bitter with rotten cherries. Not the greatest maerzen or vienna, but drinkable and still better than macro swill.
