The standard 16 mile brewery packaging: 651ml aluminum container shapped llike a tall bottle. Poured into a SA sensory glass, this brew appears a cloudy light orange/yellow color with 2 fingers worth of fluffy white head. Head retains decent but as it fades it leaves only a bit of leggy lacing about the glass.
The aroma of this brew has a scent of fresh bready sweet grains upfront. A touch of herbal hops are noticed in the background. A slight indication of some fruity esters are present, very similar to orange rind and a very subtle spiciness.
This beer has a very light flavor profile. Upfront it tastes of fresh bready grains with a light indication of fruity/citrus hops. Also included in the taste of this brew is a mixture of light spice that come across like a orange rind meets cloves.
Overall this is a clean finishing and easily drinkable beer. At times it seems a bit watery but it is a light bodied brew with a moderate level of carbonation. No problems finishing the oversized offering but it isn't really something I would revisit again.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some floral notes. Taste is biscuits, malts, some floral hops, a mild sweetness, easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer.
