Tap @ Både &. Unclear dark orange body with a small. Lacing off-white head. Aroma has mild malt and medium citric fruity with some pine. Quite smooth malty flavor, some citric fruit and decent bitterness. Don’t know if this one is a bit old, but the flavor seems to be more malt based than hop driven, still not a bad beer. Smooth malt flavor and quite balanced even with not so much bitterness. Fine body and smooth aftertaste. Good choice with my dinner.

Draft at The Schooner, Netarts. Pours a cloudy medium yellow with a dense and creamy off-white head. Big bright tangy nose, lots of orange and grapefruit and a hint of tropical fruit. Creamy medium body, getting to the thick side. Lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel on the mid palate under tons of steady pleasant citrus and a bit of tropical fruit. Refreshing finish. Nice one.
