Pours a clear gold with a bright white head that recedes fairly quickly, leaves behind quite a bit of lacing.

Can smell the barley here, but my nose isn't working right at the moment, so I may revisit this later to edit. Since nose isn't working right, tongue may be compromised as well.

Tastes pleasantly of orange, and some spice shows up as well. Possibly coriander, the taste is sweet to start then the malty character shows up through the middle and finish.

Not bitter in the slightest, light bodied, light carbonation, would consider this a great brew to enjoy on a hot day.
