Two finger head with nice lacing on a clear golden body with a very slight orangey hue. Aroma is very good with breads, pale malts, earthy and light citrus hops. Very nice for the style. Nice combo of caramel malts and earthy hops. Slight resin and sour citrus hop flavor. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one is a little simple and "safe" but its well balanced and very drinkable.

Poured brilliant orange with a small cap of bright white head. Mild aroma of sweet orange and pine.

Moderate carbonation and a crisp, light mouthfeel. Biscuit and mild toast up front with light floral hops and some stronger pine bitterness on the finish.

Clean, easy-drinking, but not too memorable.
