Hazy orange - gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and fairly dry. Fine carbonation. Mildly creamy malts, dry cream. Bitter yeasty floralness. Nice touch of orange - tangerine and a trace of crystallised fruits. Finishes dry and bitter. Nice fruits but the bitter yeasty floralness is annoying.

fiulijn (16427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle from Granville Liquor, Vancouver; 6.5% ABV
Hazy golden color with generous head. Mild, nice aroma of mandarin. The mouthfeel is quite dry; for a change, the flavor is very bready; strong bitterness with citrus peel character; it seems a bit too bitter in the end (chicory-like), otherwise is a good thirst quenching beer.

Medium sweet flavor with some pale biscuits, hay, lemon rind, more melon, faint grass. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Decent balance on the finish, some floral hops, rindy citrus, more biscuity pale malts, husky grains. Decent.

A little on the sweet side, but plenty of juicy citrus flavor. A big time kumquat and orange rind flavor. Some mild grapefruit and pine. Pretty dang nice.
