cant believe i hadnt rated this beer yet. Golden color poured into a pint glass typical white beer and very unique taste after a hard day's work in the winter time to warm up to. irresistable but not too irresistable but not the best tasting but worth trying

12 ounce bottle, best before April 2014. A friend gave me a bottle recently, so I wasn't able to try it when it was fresher. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with a half inch white head. Heaed retention is decent enough, and there isn't much lacing. The brew smells like orange peel, coriander, wheat/bready malt, and a bit of bubblegum. It tastes like orange peel, wheat/bready malt, coriander, and a sweet spiciness in general. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and has low/moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew overall. I wouldn't turn one down, but I wouldn't make a point to seek it out either. With that being said, I would like to try a fresher bottle in the future.
