3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Gold with a white head. Spicy, peppery aroma, but overall a little muted. The orange jumped out in the flavor, with some spice an doughy yeast. Dry finish with light alcohol warmth. Nice and light in the mouth with spritzy carbonation. Nice stuff, but not really too interesting. The dry finish was a nice tough though.
