Clear and copper pour with a fluffy white head. Hops are certainly apparent, but pretty tame. Scent mostly dominated by citrus, specifically orange peel. You also get some sweet caramel malt aromas. It's pretty refreshing. A nice session beer for sure. The citrus hops are most noticeable just as in the scent. Caramel, bready malts come in toward the back. Finish is crisp and clean.

A nice golden color with good head retention and lots of lacing down the glass. Scent is earthy and citrusy. Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops, with a lean toward light grapefruit. Bitterness is noticeable but not overpowering. Very nice to drink and refreshing. Amazing that a beer this good can be found at the local Wal-Mart.
