Simply awesome! I had this beer out of a can after a long day at work. This is a great example of a session beer that you can enjoy any day of the week (hence the 4% alcohol). Love it.

It pours a typical light amber into a glass. Light lacing. Smells of beautiful flowers and light citrus. Taste is sweet with a bitter aftertaste. It's freaking awesome. Mouthfeel and drinkability are above average for the style.

Overall, search this one out for a nice session ale.
