Best By 03/05/15

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that retains for a good while

S: A nice mix of citrus and piney hops balanced by a light sweetness and some maltiness

T: Follows the nose. Balanced from the start, with the mix of citrus and pine from the hops riding right alongside the lightly sweet caramel maltiness. Alcohol extremely well hidden by the sweet and bitter notes. Finishes with a very light bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft, but firm

O: Extremely drinkable and quaffable for being 8.3%. So very well balanced and rounded that it keeps you coming back for more, despite the lack of any relative complexities. Definitely worth a try, if only for the history of the recipe
