Transparent orange color with lots of visible bubbles rising to the surface. Thick frothy head with good retention and sticky lacing.
Smell is clean and reminiscent of biscuits topped with butter and honey.
Taste is smooth with lots of bready malt flavor. Hop oils are barely detectable but still there. Hints at some chocolate flavor half way though the drink which adds an interesting touch. Flavors seem to fight for dominance here and really aren't blended that well.
Light to medium-bodied brew with a high amount of carbonation. Finishes clean without any aftertaste at all.
Smooth flavor makes it quite drinkable. When I first tried this beer about a year ago I wasn't a fan. It's funny how tastes change because now I don't think its that bad. Has some interesting flavors which are different but could be blended a little better. A decent refreshing brew, somewhat overpriced though.
