Pours clear gold with a couple fingers of quick to relax off white lather atop. Spotty lace clings and head turns to a partial skim.

Hints of tart yeast combine with light citrus pith, caramel, a bit of orange peel, and some herbal, grassy notes in a very light strength aroma.

All the flavors of the aroma, nicely balanced, in a light/med. strength taste. Some pine notes accompany the herbal bitter for a dry end of sip.

Nicely low carb., nicely viscous, some good bitter linger that stays pretty clean.

All in all a decent beer with no flaws. Tasty and refreshing, but average in almost all ways.

A- Nice golden orange with a fluffy white head.
S- Earthy hops and semisweet malt.
T- The hops over power the malt too much here. Needs a little more sweetness to balance it out.
M- Light to medium carbonation. Slightly drying
D- Maybe I got an older can but this kind of missed the mark. Drinkable, just not great.
