Pours a light amber from a twelve ounce bottle into a glass the same temperature as the beer. One finger head. A little hazy with some lacing. Easy on the nose with some some light citrus hops. Little malt. Sort of reminds me of a light beer. Nothing in the flavor that stands out. Small hops and small malts. Finish leaves some lingering citrus (grapefruit rind?) bitterness on the palate. Not a bad beer overall. A little too mild on the nose with a watery thin mouthfeel. A drinkable beer but nothing outstanding.

A very nice orange body, a bit of wispy white head, moderate lacing. Mild nose of pine, citrus. Flavor is pine, fruit, and a strong malt backbone. Tasty, pretty clean, and quite nice.
