Got this in a trade with ottovon, thanks!

Poured into a pint glass. Very cloudy orange color with a nice fluffy 2 inch head. I can see why the back of the can states "clarity if overrated." Lots of visible carbonation. Great retention and lacing during the drinking period.

Aroma is sweet and like cooked mandarin oranges and a pine nut aroma with grassy hops.

Nice caramel and citrus sweet backbone with a touch of buttery flavor and a nice hope bitterness like a dash of lemon rind. Pretty well balanced without letting the sweet malts or bitter hops takeover.

Medium mouthfeel with a slight lingering hop bitterness. Pretty clean, crisp and refreshing. This would be good with a light meal.

Pretty good overall and easily a session beer. The low abv and abundance of flavor make this a cool session brew. Glad I got to try it.
