Bomber from K&L.
Awesome appearance: clear brilliant golden in color with a lasting one-finger white head and excellent lacing.
Big orange zest on the aroma with some cream soda, honey, and sweet malt.
The flavor is rather big on cream soda with sweet pale malt, honey, and lots of orange zest.
Clean and crisp on the palate yet smooth and silky with medium-light body.
This is pretty good actually after not sounding like anything too interesting. Good for the style at least.

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...
