COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mildly hopped beer with a complex malt character, and a soft creamy head. Soft and fruity with light yeast esters of apricot and orange. It is a refreshing and crisp session beer, with just enough hops to balance and round out the sweetness of the malt. 24 IBU 1.048 OG

This is a credible but slightly failed experiment--to create a session ale that satisfies someone who’d rather be drinking an IPA. They’ve tried to give it hop punch, a little body and malt, while keeping the alcohol down. It almost works. The hops are definitely present, a nice peppery zip, and the malt is trying--if not succeeding--at holding up its end. The whole thing finishes badly, though, with a hollow, tinny flavor, the hops fading to an unpleasantly harsh note with nothing to hold them up.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is a mixture of ripe orange and mandarin with a little wet hay. The taste is initially orange fruit sweet, a touch of bitter, then a little watery to the end. The texture is soft and light. It has great aroma and tastes fine.

swillguzzler99 (174) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2015
From a bomber (650mL to my metric friends). Translucent gold with slight head and mild carbonation. Fruity nose evident. Taste is weak. Slightly sweet that fizzles quickly. Coats the tongue and fades faster than cheap bubble gum. Hard to believe it contains EtOH. Drink this on a hot summer day mowing the lawn; average at best.

Rather bitter with some fruit and grain undertones. Drinkable but nothing impressive.

WABeerFiend (362) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz into a tumbler on 01.01.14. A: Gold. Somewhat opaque. Head retains well. S: Pine, citrus. T: Pine, citrus, some roasty malt. M: Crisp. Felt somewhat flat. O: This tastes like an APA. There’s a little bit of nice bitterness on the back end, but the malt balances it out. This is an ok beer, but not overly impressive.
