3.13/5 rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Very cloudy deep amber color with an extra large rocky white head. Combine the color with the haze and this almost looks like some kind of citrus juice blend. Leaves negligible lace.
S: Aroma mainly consists of wheat, toasted grain, and coriander spice. Pick up the faint scent of wood and citrus.
T&M: Just a little on the light side of medium body. A smooth mouthfeel brings flavors of wheat, citrus, and coriander. A minimal amount of grainy malt flavor comes through toward the end. Finishes fairly crisp and clean.
D: Not bad. This is a very drinkable beer that can be found almost anywhere. It seems to hit all the marks for the style, while not going all out in any areas. All in all, I find this to be a serviceable brew when the alternative is a macro lager. Otherwise, you could probably do better.
Note: This review was done without the benefit(?) of the brewery suggested orange slice garnish.

3.29/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange-gold; I swirled it, but there was lots of sediment left in the bottle. Head is 4" in pilsner glass, faded to lingering off-white 1/2" foam. Little sign of effervescence, no lacing left on the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Yeasty and bready. Little there. Grain.
Taste: Clean, watery arrival. Hint of sweetness across mid-palate. Citrus on the finish. Whither the hops?
Mouthfeel: Very slight effervescence and slick-but-clean feel.
Overall: Decent example of the style; always a fave, never disappoints, but doesn't really set itself apart, either. Good for parties and happy hours in the summer.
