Super disappointing.

In town (Iowa) for the next month and excited to dive into all the new locals, this butter-bomb did not start things off, right.

Malty in the classic NE/MW style, backed by a hefty hop character that gives way to diacetyl that overwhelms the palate.

And this was the better of the two Kalona beers I tried...

Not good at all. Very watered down taste. Oh well had to give if a try.

Can from jcwattsrugger, Thanks.
Slightly hazy deep golden orange with a small frothy white head. Citrus caramel and orange peel make up most of the aroma. Flavor adds some earth and grass, but I wish it added some hop bitterness. Feels like a mid 1990's pale ale.
