Light orange in color with a yellowish hue and perfect clarity. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Aroma is a nice combination of citrus orange hops and caramel malt. Medium bodied with tangy hop bitterness through the middle and light, rich carbonation. Bready, caramel malt sweetness down the middle with hop bitterness around the edges from start to finish. Citrus orange hop bitterness up front with bready caramel malt sweetness underneath. Citrus and light floral hop flavors near the end. Finishes with a lightly crisp, bitter hop aftertaste.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

Appearance: Pours an orange/gold color with a moderate white head that doesn't last long. Light lacing.

Smell: Citrusy, inviting.

Taste: Does absolutely nothing to stick out from the pack. Citrusy, with some okay hops and an okay caramel malt. Kinda bland, all things considered.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light, kind of watery. Lackluster.

Probably PBC's weakest offering to me. Doesn't bring anything interesting or different to the table, and it competes with Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale, which is phenomenal in my book.
