Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a rich amber color and a fairly opaque texture. Didn't exactly have a huge amount head on it, but had a fair amount of lacing.

There was a sweet smell about this one. Hops, malt and something I couldn't figure.

The hops in this one seemed like the main component. There was a fruitiness about it, along with a malt flavor.

The mouthfeel was okay. There was a decent amount of carbonation.

Overall, not too bad a beer. It isn't the most complex beer I've ever had, but it has a good bite and is surprisingly refreshing.

Appearance: Amber/copper; medium off white frothy head; good lacing

Aroma: Malty; light caramel; citrusy hops

Taste: Slightly sweet, caramel malt followed quickly by light citrus hops; a little thin, but smooth; finishes semi sweet with minimal hop bitterness. Overall decent; good session ale

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
