Golden colour with some haze, starts with a nice citrussy nose but with a little bit of cardboard. Again, in the mouth, there is a plaeasnt hops and citrus dancing together, but there seems to be some oxidation. Still a rather pleasant beer

(Bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of florals, caramel, and earthiness. Flavor of crisp, clean hops with a nice malt balance. The carbonation in body correlates well with the hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Alan’s HSC initation. This beer pours a clear golden color with a thin white head that fizzes away quickly. Lightl bready malt and hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet malt and honey, plus some mild hops and spice. The finish is sweet with notes of malt and citrus, and the aftertaste is mildly spiced hops. Overall, the name is misleading on this beer considering the style. Fairly average for what it is.
