Bottle. Light orange malt and orange peel/pine aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. MIldly sweet orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Pretty good - this seems to be up to the quality of the Red Hook beers I had in the 90s.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fruity citrusy with a hint of sweetness come from this slightly hazy blonde brew with no head. I get a light bodied almost crisp flavor of a touch of sweetnesd and rhe bitterness of the hops. The body id good and light the carbonation is good with tiny bubbles. The bitterness is great... However there is no malt or sweet flavors to offset the bitterness. The aftertaste is orange but it takes awhile for it to come thru. This beer is quite bland but would do well on a hot day. For a blond its below average.
