Light orange liquid falls just short of being cloudy. One finger head with multiple sized bubbles. Lace is decent.
"Overripe orange" smell is, I think, a nice representation of the fruitiness of the yeast, the sweetness of the malt, and the mild tartness of the hops.
Same holds true for the taste, but there is now a welcome biscuity addition that pulls this together. Sprightly with a slightly sweet malty background this is a well-balanced ale. There is a fresh yeastiness to it that hints of a recently (and well-made) home brew that would make me envious.
I think if the BJCP added an "American Mild" category, this would be a forerunner. Quite sessionable, I could drink these all night, though pausing after almost every sip to reflect upon the balance and goodness. What else can you ask for in a session beer (besides price reduction? lol)
