12oz bottle received in trade from jchampl as an extra. Thanks! Poured into a Sam Summer 1 pint tumbler.
A - Pours a clear, amber-orange with a one finger of not-quite pure white head. Head lingers briefly and settles to a nice even, but thin layer on the surface.
S - Surprisingly citrusy - lemon and orange. Some sweet and bready malt underneath...an overall fruity character that leans towards the citrus aspects for balance. Based on the proclaimed mild ale style on the label, I wasn't really expecting this much hop aroma - thought it would be maltier...I see on BA it is classified (probably more appropriately) as a pale ale.
T - More well rounded and balanced in flavor. Good level of hop bitterness, not very sharp or crisp, just there. Rounded maltiness - bready, biscuit-like and somewhat sweet. A generally fruity aspect runs throughout, not identifiable individually, just fruity...good flavor...more of what I expected coming into this then the aroma.
M - Light in body...but high in carbonation. Gives the impression of being fuller than it really is. Light and refreshing...good warm weather/yard work beer.
D - Really easy drinker...with any kind of physical activity, these will disappear really fast. Better keep a bunch on hand, because you will go through them fast. Good and flavorful, light in alcohol, and very smooth.
