4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass.
The color is a yellow gold with a small amount of haze and a finger of foamy white head with little lacing on the glass.
The smell is hoppy but not knock you over hoppy as a orange aroma comes out to greet you. Along with some hop aroma there is some sweet pilsner malts that has a bit of a biscuit aroma.
The taste is hoppy and gives a bit of bitterness with orange rind and earthy, leafy greens. There is a touch of tangerine, passion fruit and even some lemon-like flavor for a moment. The malts then steer into more biscuit flavor and some saltine flavor is there before bitterness is rained down over the back-end.
The feel of this beer is light and is quit drinkable. This is really smooth with ever the smallest bump in the road of bitterness. This makes a good early spring beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Clear dark orange pour with a small white head. Caramel and fruity, piney hop in the beak. Really welcome hoppage in the flavour alongside some juicy citrus leading to a dry bitter finish. A crisp and characterful lager that is a really good interpretation of the style.
