The appearance is the highlight of this beer, unfortunately. The color is a very clear amber that showcases a great deal of rising bubbles. The head is one finger high and off-white in color. There is good lacing and retention.
The aroma is simply sweet fruits. The taste holds small amounts of fruit flavors and mild hoppiness in the finish. There is a bitter, dry taste from what I believe too much carbonation. There is also a small grainy flavor.
The mouthfeel has abundant, almost too much carbonation. The finish is dry. I would drink only one of this at a time.

An amber color that leans a little darker with an orange hue to the body, this beer is fairly clear. It develops a creamy and pretty rocky head that rises pretty high and falls pretty quickly. It does keep up some of its form the rest of the way, and it leaves a good mix of patchy and spotty lace.
The aroma is a little faint, but there's a good balance, though it's a little maltier than it ought to be, while a light hops presence adds citrus with a touch of rind.
The hops really do need to come out stronger, and particularly so against the malty backbone. Caramel sweetness and toast are the main element, while some of the pithy citrus does come out as well. It does have some graininess running underneath.
Smoothness seems to be favored over crispness, but there is a bit keeping up. It almost runs out of life as it goes, but doesn't quite. Carbonation does remain steady.
