A: Pours a relatively clear burnt orange in color with light amounts of fine active carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and significant amounts of amber highlights.The beer has a quarter finger tall slightly fizzy slightly sudsy beige head that quickly reduces to a medium to large mottled thin patch and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel and toasted malts with slightly stronger than moderate amounts of citrus/orange zest hops. The intensity of the aroma increases as the beer warms up.

T: Upfront there is a moderate to strong flavor of toasted caramel and pale malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by a moderate amount of citrus/orange zest hops that imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness that does not linger for long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy towards the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and it would definitely pair well with foods - specifically with grilled or smoked meat. Not the most interesting beer so not sure I will pick it up again.
