3.5/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange hue. Very little head, a medium to small amount of lacing.

Smells of mild citrus, lots of biscuity malt though and any particularly specific notes are not very present. Doesn't advertise too much.

Initial taste is malt followed by a short burst of sweet fruit. Coliander, a hint of apple. Has a really spicy character to it, some mossy hops ad to it but there's a hint of pepper there as well that really makes this one more enjoyable than ratings on here would indicate.

Mouthfeel is pretty average... A little bit thin with way too much carbonation. Not a good feel but it is easy to drink due to the lack of body.

All in all, the rating on BA is a little bit harsh in my opinion. This is one worth trying but not a world-beater by any means.
