look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 6/2/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - orange, very carbonated, thin white head.
Smell - an odd blend if irange peel and caramel.
Taste - spice, some citrus, and caramel malts; complex, but strange.
Feel - some complex flavors, but too light.
Overall - good price point, mediocre beer.

Pours a clean copper penny color. Strong pour resulted in a 1" head. No lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of bread & citrus. Mild citrus taste with a mild malt flavor. Everything about this beer is mild, which makes it easy to drink. Nice flavor, smooth. Comes across as a nice spring/summer beer.
