Poured from the can into a snifter. It's only 4 percent but the snifter is fun. Pours a rich orange with one finger of head, recedes to some lacing.

Smells of orange rinds and marmalade. Delicious but also mild. Hints of grainy cracker are there as well.

Taste follows the nose. And while the flavor starts mild, it finishes with a burst of lemon, honey and orange.

Mouthfeel is medium which is something to be said for a beer so light in both abv and calories.

Great summer seasonal. One that I likely overlooked for too long.

16oz energy drink looking can, 6 days old

Semi-hazy yellow pumpkin color, sudsy esb head. Smell is lemon, pine, sweet fruits. Feel is light-medium, crisp yet buttery. Taste is bitter(obviously) pine, lemon rind, pie crust, bready grain finish.

The best tasting 4% beer you'll ever drink.
