Bottle to Pint
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.
