Served from 22oz. bottle, pours orange/amber with little-to-no head and minimal lacing. Aroma is honey and citrus, very sweet. The taste follows suit with malty sweetness, citrus and honey. A decent beer but it is a bit too cloying for me.

From the 22 oz. bottle poured a clear orange gold. Somewhat of a head. A few small patches of lacing.
Honey on the nose and palate. A bit of spicy herbal notes, but not a lot.
Thin mouthfeel with almost medium carbonation.
Could have used more earthy orange spiciness. Just okay.
