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.
