Poured from 12oz bottle into 16oz mug.

Appearance: Amber in color with a medium-sized off-white head that dissipates quickly and doesn't leave any lace behind.

Smell: Orange backed up by sweet toasted malts.

Taste: Begins with a vague citric flavor which rounds out to sweet, buttery toasted malt flavor. Finish is largely the same with more prevalent orange flavors alluded to at the beginning of the drink. A touch of spiciness in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Lighter body has balanced carbonation and a watery finish.

Overall: A pretty forgettable beer. This brew is average in every respect. Not bad, but certainly far from special.

Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 6/2/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - orange, very carbonated, thin white head.
Smell - an odd blend if irange peel and caramel.
Taste - spice, some citrus, and caramel malts; complex, but strange.
Feel - some complex flavors, but too light.
Overall - good price point, mediocre beer.

Pours a clean copper penny color. Strong pour resulted in a 1" head. No lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of bread & citrus. Mild citrus taste with a mild malt flavor. Everything about this beer is mild, which makes it easy to drink. Nice flavor, smooth. Comes across as a nice spring/summer beer.
