Nice Sunset orange coloring with a relatively thick, fleeting head.

The scent is nearly absent but hints of grain and cereal malts are found with difficulty.

The taste is very grainy, almost to a point of having texture. Backing it up is a German cereal malt flavor and some light yeast and hops. Very smooth and it goes down easy.

I would assume this is made to be an island vacation, on the beach, thirst quenching beer. If that's the case than bravo, it has succeeded.

This beer pours a clear pale gold color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes into nothing within seconds. The aroma has a faint hint of bready malt, and an even fainter hint of spicy hops. It is a very thin aroma. The taste luckily isn't as thin. It's nothing if not simple, but its bready malt character is quite pleasant. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this is a decent beer. I wouldn't seek it out, but I wouldn't refuse another either.
