This poured an amber gold in color. Right away I found an orangish aroma, like a sweet squeezed orange, peel and pith included. The flavor is surprisingly sweet as well, with a juicy orange and peel flavor dominant. It’s not as bitter as I had expected, balanced with some nice caramel notes on the malt, and finishing with a somewhat alkaline note to it.
