Tap sample. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy citrus fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. This a solid brew.
