Pours out light brown, slightly cloudy, with a average light tan head. Great aroma, with plenty of orange and citrus scents. The taste is great too. Stays true to the scent, citrusy without being too overpoweringly fruity. Excellent balance of malt and hops. You can really feel it when it hits the back of your tongue. I am thoroughly pleased with this brew and will definitely purchase it again.

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
