Picked this up at The Liquor Barrel in Golden Valley.
Pours a nice orangish yellow with about an inch tight white cap.
It smelled great. Lemon, pineapple and grapefruit come to mind. Very inviting.
Taste didn't quite match the smell but it was decent. Nice mellow flavor, orange and like the can says, toast.
Mouthfeel was good.
Very smooth. Very drinkable with its relatively low ABV.
Bender is better for a session beer, but that's just my opinion. Pick this one up if you see it.

A - Copper orange, clear, with a large white head that bubbled off quickly and reduces to a thin film, with mild lacing.
S - Surprisingly strong hop note, mostly of pine. Malt is also present, a quality of bread.
T - This is a subtle brew, but offers both cracker flavors and bread in the malts and an element of grass from the hop. There is a hint of citrus and pine, but it buried deep in the mix. Most important is the bitter shift at mid-point, where we get a more standard bitter.
M - For as bitter as this is, the brisk carbonation and light body and ABV keep things bright and easy. A true session beer.
O - Where I've found most bitters lack something at their core, this bitter is robust and fully realized, ultimately quite satisfying. This is not my favorite style, but this represents an exciting entry that I'd actually reach for when looking for a brew by the lake where I need to keep my edge.
