Had this on tap at Smith's Billiards in Springfield, MA. The beer had a murky yellow appearance with little to no head. Aromas included some bready citrus, mostly orange and maybe peach. Taste followed the nose with a generally sweet, tangerine citrus flavor. Carbonation was decent; not too crisp or creamy. Overall, I enjoyed the smell-taste combination.

Smells of sweet orange with a nice malty background. Liking the smell of this beer. The flavor is tangerine/citrus like with minimal malts coming through. Not much in the bitterness department, mildly bitterness with the citrus flavor
lingering on the finish. Well carbonated and a bit wet on the finish. Good if not a bit watery and underpowered.

Looks great. Crystal clear gold color, great head/retention and cascading lace.

Smell is floral, heal, and biscuity.

Citrus notes come through in the flavor along with the floral hops. Strong biscuit malt presence. Slightly sweet.

Mouthfeel is bitter and a little chalky. Dry finish.

Decent beer. I appreciate the balance but the flavor is a little muted.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerine, malts. Taste is tangerine, orange peels, light malts, mild bitterness. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer, but lacking the pop I expect from this style.
