Draft at NCBC. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with orange edges. Loose sudsy fish eye head. Nice tangy sweet nose, caramel and oranges. Creamy medium body with probably too little carb. Caramel and orange mid-palate, with a mild and sweet finish. Not bad but still dialing up the body and presence a bit.
