My first New bottled beer this year. call me old, lol
A: a very light orange ale, with a small head, poured into my standard mug, served at 45F Spare lacing, cloudy body.
S: light sweet biscuit like malt and average hops in the nose.
T: slightly acid, average duration, light bitter, lightly sweet. The flavor is pale English malt and a hop kick to balance it out on the slightly hoppy side. to style.
M: Light body, thin and creamy at the same time.
O: nice English PA, not perfect because of the hop blend profile to me. Its a decent beer, and this is bottle number 4 of 6. its refreshing beer, and despite the name, I would buy again.
at 5% its easy to drink a few.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a beautiful golden color. The head is about a finger high with an eggshell shade. Its texture is rough and its retention is poor. And almost no lacing is left on the glass, either. At least it has a great body...
S: Dangerously bland. Just touches of butter, caramel, and citrus are coming through. The nose actually gets weaker as it warms. Not off to a great start, are we?
T: Touches of citrus hops appear initially. Some malt enters the midtaste, and the finish brings back some citrusy notes, along with a twinge of fruit punch. Nothing fantastic, but better than the nose.
M: Light and dry - the maltiness doesn't get in the way of its crisp finish. The carbonation seems weak at first, but sneaks up on the palate.
O: If nothing else, this would be a decent lunch beer. It's inoffensive, drinkable, and would pair well with a good sandwich. And that's its biggest problem: it's insipid. There's no excitement to be found here (not to mention the nose is almost nonexistent); on the flip side, it lives up to its "Summer Ale" moniker by being an acceptable hot weather refresher. I'd never refuse one, but I won't buy it again.
