Definitely a great summer time beer as others have stated. I wouldn’t go out of my way to get my hands on it but it’s an enjoyable beer. The readily available aspect is a positive as well.

Rich, full bodied, full flavored. Malts come cheap and the hops balance it well. Some slight coffee notes make it in there as well. All in all I really enjoyed this beer apart from the bitter aftertaste which felt out of place.

$12 for a sixer of this locally. Hazy, cloudy look with many large chunks of particulates floating around like pieces of cheese - not appealing in the least bit. Mild, rather nondescript grainy aroma. Taste is citrusy, lacking the spice that one would generally expect from the style. Mouthfeel is on the creamier side. Overall, not bad but not great - perhaps it would benefit from the addition of some spices.

Pours a cloudy Orange with a nice head. Very smooth.....creamy...almost has a light amber taste to it. Very drinkable. Definitely worth a try.
