Extremely refreshing drink that goes down so smoothly. It is best drank quickly and when its just poured, as its freshness quickly goes. Its a tasty well hoped larger to drink on a hot summers day.

Pour from bottle, the liquid is light gold in color and lively, albeit flattens fairly fast. Smell citrus, taste lightly sweet. It is light bodied and has a lightly bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer.
