12 oz bootle into a tulip.

a: Clear pale yellow. An inch of white head with large bubbles. Nice retention. No real lacing.

s: Malt and caramel aromas followed by light citrus.

t: Enjoyable maltiness with hints of citrus. Light carbonation and a rather watery finish.

mf: a creamy malty mouth feel. Watery grain finish.

o: Enjoyable but not a beer to rejoice over. Having said that...I had several of them.

Pours a straw yellow with a nice white head with decent retention. The smell is full of malt sweetness with light citrus, orange peel, on the nose. The taste was very pleasant with hints of sweet cream from the malt and then a nice bite from the citrus hops. Well balanced and easily enjoyable.

NOTHING about this Ale jumps out at you....It doesn't taste BAD but it ends VERY watery.....almost flat. One and Done for me...
