Pours cloudy gold. White, medium, foamy head stays shortly.

Smells malti, citrusy and bready.

Taste bready malt, lightly sweet, fading to a light bitter Citrus. finish is lingering light bitter citrus. Light body and fizzy medium carbonation.

On tap in some dive blues bar in New Orleans

White foam quickly settles to a layer of foam

Clear Honey amber liquid

Not much on the aroma

Get more malts than the hops

Good cold refreshment on a hot humid night

Nice beer

While not horrible, it seems rather bland overall and not particularly noticeable in a beer line up. Better than water but plenty of other better choices out there.
