Poured into two 4 oz prairie chalices and 1 high ball

A - Cloudy, and not because of the pour, this beer just isn't very clear. Just a thin lacing as a head, I've poured 2 and was very aggressive on the second pour, because I wanted more head than the first pour, it simply wasn't there.

S - I get a lot of orange, some straw, smells yeast-y

T - The Orange is the most notable thing coming through. I might be crazy here, but I get a black pepper kick to it, but I'm probably off on that. Also maybe some honey, but really the orange is the prevailing flavor.

MF - Carbonation is surprising based on the weak head. Very light-bodied.

O - I know I shouldn't try to compare this to the Prairie Standard, that it replaced, but this doesn't hold a candle to the standard. They describe this as more session-able than the Standard, but the 1% difference in ABV doesn't really do much to make it more session-able, really. Still, at $2.25 a bottle after tax at my local liquor store, it's still a steal. This may be the worst beer I've had from prairie, but it's still better than 80% of what's out there. This brewery continues to put out phenomenal products and really deserves more recognition. keep up the good work.

Straw to golden in color with considerable cloudiness. A half inch of dense off white foam is present. Brussels lacing. I smell a hint of lemon,a touch of grassy flavor, and pale malt. The taste is lemon and then a blend of a grassy flavor and pale malt. The mouth is crisp and heavily carbonated.
