Pours a slightly hazy amber color with orange highlights. The head is big and creamy, good retention. Quite pillowy.

Pretty strong grain aroma with hints of metal and sulfur. It has that adjunct smell. The oranges pop through here and there and help with the aroma.

The taste is of a soft amber malt. A bit grainy but not has bad as in the aroma. Some metal but no sulfur. The orange is subtle but noticeable and probably helps mask some of the other flavors. Light grassy bitterness in the finish.

Moderate feel with fizzy carbonation. Good balance on the palate. Finishes slightly bitter.

An ok beer. Served cold the beer isn't bad but I fear the adjuncts may pop out more as it warms.
