Golden straw colour. Flowery aroma hints of quenching capabilities. Fresh citrusy character - light and grapefruity. A little astringency. Light malt notes. Similar to an English golden ale.

On tap at the Rose and Raindrop in Portland with Ratebeerians galore. Light orange, clear with a foamy head. Piney hop aroma with some orange. Flavour is bitter and orange but the hops simply dominate too much.
