3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A small, dense, off-white head leaves lacings as the orange-golden beer is drank. The aroma is quite citrusy, with orange and some grapefruit. Pineapple and pine cone notes. There’s some sweetness in the flavor, balanced by the bitterness, and with flavors of orange zest, grapefruit and pine cones. Some alcohol warmth. Lasting bitterness in the finish. A pretty pleasant one, but there’s too much sweetness compared to bitterness. 131123
