Pours a dark copper color. Bready smell with a hint of sweetness. Taste is malty with a bit of sweet and citrus mixture. Well balanced. Smooth, light mouthfeel.

LOOK: Poured into 25oz mug down the side & finishing with center pour leaving little less that finger of light tan, almost white, slightly fizzy head which dissipates quickly leaving almost no lacing. Body is light golden slightly orange hue, moderately cloudy but clean.

SMELL: A hint of sweet malty, almost bready, & a bit of a citrus fruit thing going on, but couldn't make up my mind on exactly what I was smelling. Was kinda curious of how it would taste, based on aroma.

TASTE: Moderate carbonation cleanses the palate almost immediately leaving mostly aftertaste as the flavor profile. That being said, slightly malty sweetness nicely blended with the hops & a somewhat citrus finish. I couldn't really discern much if any of an alcohol flavor. Interesting flavor combination for such a light bodied beer. Quite refreshing & very easy to drink.

FEEL: Very light/watery. Moderately carbonated, making for a very clean finish. Great beer for hot summer day kind of event, but little body as far as the palate.

OVERALL: It's a descent beer. Nothing really stands out about this beer, but it's very drinkable & it's lightness makes it very refreshing. Wouldn't go out of my way to buy, but wouldn't avoid it either.

Hope you enjoyed the review...CHEERS

Pours a bright copper color. There is a feint bready, malty aroma with minimal hops, and it tastes much like it smells. No particular flavors stand out, bad or good, and it goes down rather smoothly.

While it's far from the best beer I've ever had, it's also far from the worst as well. I may buy this again if I see it, but it's not something I would go out of my way to get either.
