A - Pours an almost clear amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind a bit of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet malts with some honey, orange zest, and some light spice. There is a touch of floral smells as well.
T - Starts off with some orange and other citrus with some floral flavors and some light honey. Through the middle, some light spice and some sweeter honey. The finish is a mix of orange peel, honey sweetness, and some sweet malts.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sweet honey finish.
D - Very drinkable. Super sessionable. On the light side but still has some good flavors and very nice balance.

This beer was poured into a standard pint glass from a 22 recently purchased from Alpine. I am confident this brew is fairly fresh.
A - The head appears standard white, with medium bubble density and thickness. The body is clear and golden in color. The appearance is nice and clean.
S - The smell is light, citrusy, and sweet.
T - The taste is also light, citrusy, and bright. There is sweetness throughout and tanginess at the backend.
M - The mouthfeel is easy, airy, and clean.
O - This is a nice summer beer for those hot, sunny days, when you need something that will not hold you down. This beer is nicely spiced and easy to drink. My wife and her girlfriend really enjoyed this brew during the afternoon. Simple drinking here...
