A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A sweet aroma of citrus, malt, and spices.

T: Tasted of citrus (orange, lemon), malt, and an unwelcome grassy quality in the finish. If not for this last component, the flavor would have fared better.

M: A high amount of carbonation with a crisp, smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is another wildly uneven beer, one with some good qualities and some that are lagging.
