A- a paler gold with significant visible carbonation. A nice one finger head, creamy white and lasts for a while
S- mild hops and bread.
T- interesting. A nice balance between the citrus hops and the bready malt. Some sips are malty and some are hoppy. It's definitely different.
M-Lighter, with minimal carbonation
O- Like the taste, interesting and different.

The beer is a clear light orange. The head is white and fizzy but lasts quite a while afterwards with bits of lacing.
The beer has a slightly sweet and malty smell. The hops come off as citrusy and like an orange.
The beer is extremely bitter and hoppy for a common steamer. the hops are citrusy with hints of lemon. The sweet malt gets lost in the hops but is still there as an undertaste.
Heavily carbonated and medium bodied. Leaves me feeling refreshed.
A pretty hoppy common and would do well in the summer for a refreshing drink.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Interesting color for a steam beer, never seen one this light before. Regardless, a real nice lemon opaque yellow, and almost glowing hefeweizen color to it's body color. Matching soapy four finger head with some clumpy soapy retention also. Leaves quite a lot of suds left over after the pour. Pretty solid.
Nose is fruity, maybe some hidden cloves. Strangely some muted sticky qualities, and a real interesting sharp yeast character. Hard to believe this is a lager, but it's quite a good nose regardless. After some reflection, it smells like pineapple.
Palate is real interesting. Large fruit tropical component, and quite distinct with a nice bitterness. It really tastes like a bitter pineapple. Aftertaste has a nice sticky malt quality with some light sweetness, but a real nice hop bitterness to match. Light bodied juicy and fruity quality that doesn't distract from the palate.
This is classified as a steam beer, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Either way, it's actually a real unique and great tasting brew.

Unique blend of malt & hops give a up front hippy malt flavor with a spicey back end. Unfiltered WIT appearance with a malty spice aroma. Good hot weather beer. I really like Port City beers this one just happens to fall at the bottom of my list. Port City is a Great brewery Optimal Wit and Monumental IPA are my favorites.
