It has a nice orangish color that is pretty appealing and there is a nice inch long head that for me is keeping pretty well contrary to other reviews.

The smell is virtually non-existant. I really can't get a good whiff of anything.

The taste is outstanding. Very smooth and citrucy. A great summer ale.

I recommend it if you're in the mood for a summery, drinkable ale.
