Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a slightly orange hint. Upon pouring it has a medium white head which fades at a moderate pace to give a small amount of lacing.
Smell – Citrus notes mixed with a somewhat biscuit aroma are the base. With these aromas are some floral and sweet caramel aromas as well.
Taste – A drier biscuit malt flavor is the first to meet the tongue. A little bit of citrus taste works its way into the taste early on. Hints of lemon are the most prevalent, but there are slighter orange flavors as well. More towards the middle and the end, the citrus subsides and a more flowery/greenish taste mixed with some caramel sweetness come to the tongue. A rather unique and interesting flavor combo.
Mouthfeel – Light in body with a slightly higher than average level of carbonation. The light body and carbonation make it quite refreshing and make for an easy drinking brew.
Overall – Some interesting taste combinations make this a brew to try. It is easy to drink and refreshing.
