Pours an orange-amber, with a fair bit of trailing lace and yeast settling to the bottom of the glass. Decent carbonation introduces mildly citrussy hops aand a touch of sweet malts - the finish is lemony, with a bit of astringency, and a bitterness that almost leaves you questioning your choice in beers. It's not that this is a bad beer - quite to the contrary, as it's refreshing and doesn't have any off flavors - it's just that there are better examples of the style available.
May be best enjoyed when you're looking for a summertime refresher.
