This will be my first beer in this style, so I'm not quite sure what to expect.
Pours a nice deep copper color, with a hint of orange-pink almost. About a finger of off-white head, little retention.
Smells of bready, light malt and a bit of citrus that even smells a bit metallic... not sure if I like this, but what the heck. I've smelled worse.
The taste is probably the best part about the beer. But it's still nothing to write home about. Very balanced, there's just a bit of tangy bite on the front, nicely followed by a light, sweet malt backbone.
The mouthfeel does compliment the flavor nicely, however. I feel that it's just right. Just a little prickly, but not so much as to make the beer seem more bitter than it really is. Well done.
Overall, a pleasing beer. If this was readily available, I would have no problem with having a few of these. But for now, it's off to more adventures in beer tasting...
