A: Nice hazy orange/straw color. No visible sediment, simply slight haze limiting transparency. Light, light orange; close to pale orange/straw.
S: Sweet and orange citrus. Nothing special, but good scent to this beer.
T: Definitely pick up on the sweetness from the honey. Touch of sweetness was good, any more though and it would have been a bit too much. (bordering)
M: Good medium-bodied, creamier than expected mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation, more texture than I was expecting.
O: Good solid beer, would be great to drink on a hot summer day if wanting to bypass a standard selection Blue Moon or Summer Ale from a large supplier. Would definitely try again.
Serving type: on-tap

kind of a random purchase when I got that once-in-awhile craving for a boring APWA
a: wheat ale glass, lightly hazed honey golden in color, topped with a thin layer of white carbonation, average retention
s: wheat and pale malt base, clean with a light peppery spice, a little floral, brief glimpses of orange, some bready yeast aromas, not very fruity but some apple or pear, mildly hopped
m: carbonation a touch spritzy, lower in level, with a lighter body
t: cleanly grainy wheat and very pale malts through and through, some yeast, mild orange peel, grassy hop flavors, just a touch of sugar early before drying thoroughly to leave a hint of spice and mild bitterness, very delicate honey flavors that are quite tough to pull out - but that's usually expected with honey, pretty one-dimensional here
o: not bad but fairly uninteresting and one-dimensional, nothing off about it though - would be a decent choice on a hot summer day, honey pretty much absent
Serving type: bottle
