Cloudy orange amber with medium white head. Aroma of citrus and normal hoppy helles stuff. No basement. Taste is hoppy bitter and also citrussy carbonation sour. A hint of malty sweetness also comes through. Mouthfeel is foamy, carbonation is actually a little aggressive. Nice long bitter hoppy finish though. Overall nice and summery as promised.
