Appearance - arrives with an attractive creamy cap of maybe a finger.The beer is a cloudy murky amber/orange. The server described it as a pale ale / wheat kind of beer, and it looks the part. Lots of sticky lace on the sides. Not sure if the new brewer's take would be differnt than Guy's so I wanted to try this again.

Aroma - lightly sweet, very light grain. A hint of citrus/floral but very understated.

Taste - wheaty/grainy base, pleasantly light hops have more citrus than bite, but there's a little nip on the aftertaste. Finishes on the dryer side, some moderate citrus presiding and encouraging that next sample. While not especially complex or intriguing, it is crafty, fresh, tasty, and a fine beer for my first toast of the weekend to the Beer Hunter.

Mouthfeel - wonderfully smooth, medium-bodied with a memorable resilience post-swallow.

Drinkability - great sessionability as I would expect, it's very similar to their pale ale but with more grain presence than I remember.
