3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from the spring variety pack. Pours a clear copper with a medium collapsing off-white head. Aroma consists of wheat, citrus drink powder, oranges, caramel--all of it a little faint. Taste is caramelly sweet with the fruit taking a backseat; finishes a little dry and faintly bitter. Body is thin, mouthfeel is creamy and a little watery. Obviously nothing extraordinary, but there are no offnotes and it doesn’t taste too bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the spring mix-pack. Nice coloration, a bright amber, slightly brownish. Small beige head. Mild scents of wheat and malt, just the slightest hint of orange/citrus. A little more of the orange in the taste, along with wheat and malt. Pretty much just how it’s described on the label. Mild overall. It’s decent, but doesn’t hold my attention for long.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 1/19/15 from a capped 12oz bottle, thanks to Kyle. Pours clear dark orange with average white head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is bready caramel malt with a very light herbal touch, and some bitter orange peel. The flavor is the same bready caramel malt with just the lightest hint of zesty orange peel. The body is medium with average carbonation and a short malty finish.

Bottle from mix pack, pours a clear copper with no head at all, and I poured it fairly aggressively, aroma is boring, sweet malt with a touch of spices, the flavor has a metallic front end with a sweet boring finish, ugh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is hay, malt, and something else subtle that must be the Valencia. Ah yes. The orange definitely shows up in the taste. Some malt and just a hint of bitter as well. The finish is of average length, bittersweet. Not too bad of a beer IMO. This one’s been sitting in my fridge for many months, so maybe this one is actually better with some age?
