From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 6, 2014.

Something must have changed since the Bros reviewed this one in 1999 and gave it a "Very Good" rating.

I get a cloudy orange pour with a fizzy head that dissolves fast.

Aroma is buttery but beyond that I pull in some yeast, pale malts, and a mild hop note. Smells more like a mash rather than a final product.

The body is light to medium so that's OK.

The taste is bland concoction of pale malts with a fairly forward hop note but it still tastes a bit off.

The beer poured a nice white and foamy head thT was surprisingly vigorous. The beer itself was a golden and clear color that looked fairly nice. The smell had a sort of orange and citrus note that had a nice and malty/bready smell to it. The beer tasted similar to how it smelled. The taste had orange rind notes and the malts had a strong presence that were similar to caramel. The mouthfeel is a little bit thick for an APA and waS .edium bodied. The overall feel was a little off because of how thick and velvety it felt. Overall, a decent beer.
