Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy burnt cantaloupe body. White head with minimal retention. No lacing.

Aroma: Citrus, oatmeal, grains, spices.

Taste: A salty, grainy start. Citrus peel coats the body with a subtle spicy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Not bad. I had this on July 4 and it tasted great with firewerks.
