Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy
amounts of active visible carbonation and faint lemon + golden yellow
highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy foamy white head that reduces to a
thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the
edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
Aroma: Light to moderate aromas of cereal grain, bready, and biscuit malts with
a light amount of herbal hops.
Taste: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of cereal grain, bready, and biscuit
malts with minimal amounts of sweetness. That is followed by light flavor of
grassy and herbal hops in the finish which contribute a light amount of
bitterness which fades away slowly.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
Relatively crisp upfront.
Overall: Easy to drink and quite refreshing, a good beer for a hot day in the
North Carolina summer.
