Bright Orange cloudy color with a thing ring of white head with spotty lace. Smell wheat bread and lemon maybe a banana in there. The taste is wheat with a pepper bit up front and a tart bitter lemon on the end, a litte spicy. Mouthfeel is thin with a touch of medium but perfect for what a summer beer should be to me. Overall this beer gets called plan and boring but its awsome for summer and I love it for sitting out on the deck. I think it has nice flavor for a beer that needs to be thin and drinkable during a hot day.
