Drank from a can. Clean and refreshing, with some hop bitterness, but I'm not getting much other character from it - wonder if it would have been better in a glass. Concurring with the other review for good outdoor activity beer.

Can is 5.7%abv slightly higher than stated above.

Apearance is quite dark amber,semi-transparent with a nice white head.

The smell is pretty faint, some earthy tones.

The taste is bread, biscuit, earth and grains.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

Overall not bad but boring, glad I only picked up a single can.

Smells citrusy, but there is a little armpit-like twinge in there, as if it were a touch stale. Thiis the only turn off of this brew. Beer is well filtered which yields a handsome tangerine/burnt orange color. Flavor is rather malty, with hops mostly for flavor and not hitting too hard with bitterness. Slight citrus in the finish, but mostly a sweet, balanced malt flavor throughout. A touch biscuity. Goes down smooth, but never lacking in flavor. Not a big excitement, but incredibly pleasant.
