Enjoyed this 12 oz beer out of a standard pint glass.

A: Pours a light golden hue with a small white wispy lace that for a for awhile.

S: Fruity orange and wheat aroma.

T: Crisp and slightly tart flavor up front followed by a fruity middle and finished on the dry side of fruity.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent beer – nothing would I grab again.

A- sterling straw color, head recedes quickly, little lace, good level of bigger sized bubbles coming from bottom of glass.

S- cereal graininess and sweetness with lemon zest and orange pith.

T- slightly sweet attack with a crisp citrusy finish, little hop bitterness. Finish lingers for a bit with a lemony citrus complemented with a cereal grain taste

M- Moderately full, remains crisp.

O- a fine summertime slammer, the lemon/orange citrus notes are pleasantly restrained.

Poured from bottle into glass.

Appearance: Clear, pale golden with light head.

Aroma: Citrus (mostly orange)

Taste: Light flavor of a pale ale followed by citrus (definite taste of orange) with a tartness which I’m assuming comes from the lemon. Ending with a sweet taste similar to that of a wheat beer. Nice malty flavor without losing the hop-flavor and crispness of a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Crisp yet smooth. Has a dry start, but does not linger.

Overall: Great summer brew. Light and refreshing, but still has a bit of a kick to it coming from the hops. Nice citrus flavor that is not overbearing and is fulfilling. Pleasant aftertaste (of a wheat beer with hints of hops) and does not linger too long. Just enough to remind you to take another swig.
