look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: This beer, poured from a tap into a pint glass, produced an off-white frothy 1.2" head that dissipated slowly leaving thin head lacing. Carbonation was soft in a cloudy gold body with orange highlights.

AROMA: A light scent of baked bread with a moderate orange hop bouquet. Moderate apple and pear fragrances rounded off the aroma. Really quite nice and enticing. Can't wait for the taste.

TASTE: The taste was an extension of the aroma: light baked bread, a lighter orange hop taste than the smell had prepared me for, lighter notes of apple, pear, pepper, spices and a hint of alcohol. Very nice indeed.

MOUTHFEEL: This beer has a light body with a smooth texture, moderate carbonation and thin body lacing that dissipates slowly. The initial flavor is a light wheat flavor with a lightly bitter finish that lasted for a moderate length of time.

DRINKABILITY: This wasn't quite as dry as I'd like for a session ale, but overall it was quite satisfactory. It's great for a summer day at the pool, at the beach, or in the back yard after mowing the lawn. It's a beer that is repeatable all day long, has a memorable aroma/taste/mouthfeel to it, is easy to drink and provides good value for the cost. I'll be buying this one over and over again.

Serving type: on-tap
