3.41/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent gold with 3+ fingers of eggshell colored head. Below average head retention & lacing

S: Citrus notes, not much else

T: Light bready notes, limes, a little salt & orange up front. Light orange and bready notes as this warms, just a little salt. Finishes with a little lime & salt

MF: Light/medium body, crisp carbonation

Drinks easy enough, but not that interesting

12oz canned 7-15-19, opened 8-22-19.
1" white head that fades fast, only a thin cap and ring less than a minute in. Clean golden beer with active carbonation swirling around.
Wheat, yeast, floral notes - orange blossom.
Muted flavors of wheat malt, orange and lime, not any one thing standing out -- expected more orange or more lime -- very mild overall.
Light body, medium carbonation and a strange finish - feels dry around the outside edges of the mouth but has a sweetness at the back of the tongue...strange.
Easy to drink but lacking in my own opinion.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden color with a very short-lived, small head. It smelled of lime. orange and toasted caramel. Sweet caramel and orange with some tart lime and hints of salt. Good summer beer.

From the bottom of the can: "CANNED04/17/19 @07:31 244 888"

Appearance: The beer has a dark gold-to-bronze colored body with excellent clarity. The had is short and white with large bubbles and moderate retention. No lacing.

Aroma: The beer smells like orange hard candy and grapefruit juice.

Taste: The beer opens with a bit of biscuit flavor and a touch of cereal grain. There is a light herbal hop presence to the beer and a touch of lime at the end.

Mouthfeel: The beer is easy to drink, but the body of the beer feels too light and it feels a bit flat.

Overall: The can states that this is an "ALE BREWED WITH ORANGE, LIME AND SALT" and these are apparent in the flavors and aromas of the beer. It has a nice malt flavor as well. Although the beer didn't have much body to support the beer it can still be an enjoyable beer to drink. I would drink it from time to time.

This is a decent summer beer. It has citrus and wheat flavor, is slightly tart from the lime, with a hint of spice from the coriander. It's a little bit sweeter than I would have liked, but otherwise is pretty good.

Perfect food pairing would be at a mexican restaurant with some chips and salsa. I'm not sure I mean this negatively, this beer tastes exactly like a tortilla chip
