3.6/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle from a sixer bought in Ohio ($10) poured into a New Belgium snifter. Bottled on 8/24/11 so consumed so not quite ideally fresh; hasn't changed much in the last month since the first bottle.

Appearance (4.5): Clearish goldish orange with a finger of head. Reduces to a thin layer and thick, bubbly ring with some lacing at the top.

Aroma (3.5): A light fruitiness with notes of mango, orange, and maybe some lemon and pine. A touch of caramel and some cracker.

Taste (3.5): A light orange up front and a bit watery. More tangerine and a slight bitterness through the middle. A touch of caramel towards the end. The light caramel and a touch of pine in the finish.

Mouthfeel (4): Light bodied and medium-high carbonation. Pretty slick but some prickly carbonation.

Overall (3.5): Very drinkable but not very flavorful. Won't go out of my way to pick it up again.

A- Golden with agressive head after slow pour.

S- grainy and wheat is what i get from this one. not impressed

T-Just ok nothing to write about but some corn and maybe wheat malt. not sure how to describe this one.

M- watery and thin, more like a light lager than a ale.

O- very dissapointed with this one from left hand. most there stuff is very good but this one is a big let down for me. not worth the $8 a sixer.
