3.85/5 rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Again, someday I'll get real glassware.
Appearance: straw-colored and slightly opaque with a thick but quickly dissipating head. (4.0)
Smell: mild, citrusy, wheaty, a little yeasty. Extra points for character, points deducted for lack of much presence.
Taste: it's mild, but in this case I prefer "subtle". Slightly malty, with floral hops and a little bit of a bite right at the end. There is a very light citrus flavor that blends well with the hops.
Mouthfeel: medium body, but quite a lot of carbonation. This leads to a pretty creamy texture, though I would venture to say it's a tad over-carbonated. (3.5)
Drinkability: this is mild enough to not be too filling and tasty enough to keep drinking apace. I have to take a little bit off for the extra carbonation, which is inflating my gut with CO2 and not more sweet, delicious beer.
Overall, this is a quite enjoyable beer. This beer, more than any I've reviewed so far, gave me a little bit of trouble in that I *want* to rate it highly, but I have to downgrade a half-point here or there due to a few imperfections (at least, in my opinion). It's the difference between a rather good beer that could use a few improvements versus a mediocre beer with a few high points. I know I'd much rather have the former than the latter, but so often they get the same scores. I suppose that's why we should read reviews rather than just look at the scores.

3.88/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Golden, slightly yellow color; huge head!
S: Powerfully sweet, citrus/orange scent
T: Very light; Obvious low ABV; Extremely orange-y but the aftertaste isn't amazing
M: Soft bite which fades; nothing exceptional
Though pouring this gorgeous beverage looks incredibly promising, the taste and feel seem too light to leave an impression. The orange is almost overwhelming. The first kick is light but great, and the aftertaste is greater. It's all the steps in the middle that make this drink lackluster.
