Mouthfeel - Light. Medium carbonation. Drinkable.

Overall - Drinkable and pretty flavorful. Nothing unique, though.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours an orange color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly fell. Thick lace painted the glass during the session.

Smell: oranges and a soft bitterness were the dominant aromas.

Taste: Caramel, orange, a bit of grass / earthiness, and a nice floral bitterness. Nicely balanced flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and mildly dry late.

Overall: this beer was very easy to enjoy and tasted great as it seemed to be a super fresh keg. This can be a sessionable beer and can be enjoed with a variety of foods.

Serving type: on-tap
