Thanks to my co-worker Kathleen for this one

App- A fairly sparkly looking orange with some good bubble activity. I used a friends pint glass, so not sure if right glass or not, but best I had. Small 1/2" head that fell to nothing. A couple dots of cling.

Smell- A light bit of an small malty orange. A little bit of a spice note and maybe just a touch of bitter. A light IPA or a small pale ale really.

Taste- This was pretty tasty. I liked it better than the Detroit brewing one. Had more pop and flavor vs just a small malt backbone with a little citrus. Nice balance and a good fast drinker. An easy thirst quencher.

Mouth- A little bit of a lighter medium body with a fairly light medium carbonation. A good amount of malt on the back with a touch of citrus and a bit grainular.

Drink- Better than the 1st Altbier of the night, but wasnt anything wowing. Solid offering and quaffable.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a rich golden amber with a plain 1 finger white head. head lasted ~five minutes before leaving a few lacings on the glass. Aroma was slighty sweet and fruity, but also had notes of acid and yeast. Taste started out fruity with a hint of citrus, before shifting to a yeasty hop flavor. A slightly sour and yeasty flavor lingered in the mouth after sipping. Felt ok, maybe a bit overly bubbly. Overall not bad, but came across a bit strange towards the end of each sip.

Nice pour with a deep straw color and foamy cap that sticks heavily to walls of the glass.The smell which is most prominent is the citrus aroma with a slightly grassy note or two. Taste is a bit above average with a slightly malty taste and some grape-fruity citrus bite to it. Mouthfeel is a medium feel with a good carbonation level to it. Nice lacing down sides of glass. Like it alot but not top of the style very decent beer.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Clear gold color, big frothy head. Nice lacing.

S: Orange, citrus, sweet, tart - lemon meringue. Smells like dessert.

T: bitter, lemon, orange, grapefruit.

M: Lots of bubbly carbonation that really helps to bring the flavors out.

O: This is really an exceptional pale ale. I'm especially a fan of the subtle, delicious nose, which really adds a lot to the complexity of the flavor.
