Appearance: Cloudy, light orange. Frothy head that quickly turns into a slim lace.
Smell: Lemon and orange.
Taste: Same as smell.

I think this is a very good offering. The fact that it didn't have decent head retention or barely any lacing was really surprising. Orange and lemon are the dominating factors, but nothing near exploding with those flavors. However, it's a nice, light, crisp brew that would really hit the spot served pretty cold during a hot day. I could see myself getting this again.
