Looks disturbingly like a macro, with clear golden color and lots of foam. Nice head retention though.
Smells quite good. Smells of toasted malts and fruit.
Taste is surprisingly malty. Getting hints of bread, resin and a strong lemon flavor.
This beer is surprisingly full-bodied. Also surprising, given the huge head when poured, is the lack of carbonation on the palate. I also can't tell if it leaves a strange aftertaste or just a strange texture in the mouth after you swallow.
I ate some strawberries with this beer on a hot day in late May and they went well together.

A: Golden orange sunset transparency, sliver of head, mild random carbonation visible, TONS of lacing.
S: Hops forward, slight spice or grain presence.
T: Mellowed hops, slight orange.
M: Light body, light-medium carbonation. Really pleasant and refreshing.
O: Love it. Wondering if the mellowed hops on draft turns into A LOT of hops out of the bottle. If not, this will most definitely be in the summer rotation with Dos Equis and Troegs Sunshine Pils.
Serving type: on-tap
