Medium gold with a decent foam white head. No lace.

Some citric hops in the nose, some light grain and malt.

Nice hop presense up front, leading to some bready malt. Citric bitterness works here, and is present in the finish.

Lighter bodied, good carbonation.

Overall, really liked this one. The extra bit of hops put this over the top. Very enjoyable and refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap

On Tap at the Portsmouth Brewery.

Appearance: Cloudy amber color with a thin white head and no lacing.

Smell: Hops and citrus, not too strong.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied with a watered down hop and citrus flavors.

Overall: Nothing special, but not bad. I would have it again.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Not much head even on the initial pour. Cloudy orange, dirty gold color.

Very mild aroma (the glass may be dirty). Low hop.

Much stronger hop flavor, it's almost to the IPA level. Decent body with a surprisingly high carbonation. Long puckering aftertaste.

Serving type: on-tap
