This beer pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thick fluffy off white head. The head fades slowly, leaving a curtain of lace.

This beer has a smooth, mild floral hop aroma. Some grassy aroma is also present. A slight malty aroma is also detectable.

This beer tastes much like it smells. It is quite mild, and slightly boring. Floral hops and a slight grassy hop flavor mostly. It has a slight caramel sweet malty flavor as well. It has a citrus flavor in the finish.

This beer is carbonated just right. It goes down smooth, leaving a crisp floral hop aftertaste.

This beer might make a good session beer. It is crisp and refreshing, and it is not too high in alcohol.

Overall: This beer is good. Not too much above average though. Nothing makes me think GREAT!

1/4" head that dissipates quickly, minimal lacing. mild orange to light amber body. sediment and haze present, the former more so.

smells citrus-y. lemon, oranges, lime all seem to be present. smells like old brick foundation to a certain extent, like old, clean buildings.

bready hops, orange peels, sweat.

tingly smooth. effervescent.

old beer, let's be honest. shit has been in my fridge for 3 months. i generally love this beer, review MAY NOT do it justice.
