Had on tap at Brew It Up. Served in a pint glass.
A - Dark straw in color, transparent with a small head. Lacing is better than I expected.
S - Light roasted malts and orange peel. Some noble hops and a slight West Coast hoppy finish.
T - Pale Ale. That's all I'm saying. Nice malt profile and some nice cascade (I think) presense and the finish. Orange on the smell is very subdued in the taste, but is actually nice, and I don't really like flavored beers.
M - Medium to thin, but not offensive in any way.
D - Very nice and sessionable.
Serving type: on-tap

Tasted this at the brewery bar in May 2006 (served very cold, but quite a thirst quencher) and bought a 22 oz. bottle for $3.49 to take home and try a few days later. This review is based on the bottle.
Along with all the typical name rank and serial number stuff, the label sez "brewed with varietal orange blossom honey".
Appearance is a hazy light golden, almost milky wit-like with a medium head at first. The head quickly goes to a thin cover.
Aroma is honey, slight sweet citrus, and a kiss of hops. The flavor follows though, with only a bit of hop bite at the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin (I think on purpose).
This is one of those simple, easy drinking "good on a hot day" beers. Is it world class beer? No not really, but it's not trying to be. And for that I give it good marks. If you are thirsty, this will stop that problem. Enjoyable!
