Nice orange colour but little head. Little nose, a little honey. Light to medium body with mild but not crisp finish. OK but not memorable.

Clear dark straw color with moderate activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 2 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of caramel, sweet corn and barley, faint honey and lemon, and some herbal spices. Sugary cereals, minimal bitterness. Slick full body with prickly carbonation. Light weak finish, a dash of caramel and very subtle honey, and a bit of grassy and leafy hops..hardly no honey. Very soft and bland. Okay freshness, weak flavors, overly accessible, but doesn't feel too adjunct. Overall poor quality craft.
