Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A bit of orange on the nose. There’s a hint of floral on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but nothing spectacular.

Slightly skunky with earthy orange and grass flavors, and a bready malt body. Not too bad, but nothing great.

Loads of citrus zest blended with flavors of grainy bread, floral hops, and a crisp pine finish. Nice hop bitterness throughout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a light cloudy orange color with aromas of bread malts, light coriander, some orange peel and light citrus. Flavors are bread and oranges, light hop presence, bitter aftertaste, not the best ipl on the market but decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Premium Lager from a premium trader, thanks Jason! Pours orange hold with a white head that quickly fades to a ring and a dusting. Aroma is white bread, orange, slightly dank. Malt backbone is light, basically disappears behind orange citrus hop. Orange peel bitter in the finish. This is a tasty IPL.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, yeast into nice pine, slight orange peel, grapefruit into a bit of spice, floral notes as well come through. Taste was a mix of floral hops, some orange, grapefruit, some pine into a bit of bread, biscuit, some slight honey, finishing bitter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a lightly hazed pale gold color with a fizzy white head. The aroma is oranges and grass with some green onion and light florals. The flavor is the same. The orange is thankfully kept to a minimum with more dank onion and grass. A decent amount of citrus bitterness with hints of orange sweetness. Very flavorful for a low gravity lager. A bit messy, but interesting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had high hopes based on the score. This is definitely not going to rank as a favorite. Pours a light orange, with a head that quickly disappears to lacing. Didn’t get much out of the nose. light citrus. Has a hoppy and citrus taste, but is very watery.
Overall, this is a pass

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, big thanks to umich03jm. Date on the bottle reads 9/24/14. Totally hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent ridges of lace. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation, light soft, with a lightly slick finish. Big orange peel, zesty flavor, kind of spicy. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. Pretty assertively hoppy, big citrus and spicy hop notes. Towards the end, good grassy and herbal hop flavor comes out. The flavor of a 7% IPA, impressive to pull off at just 4.5%. And the fact that it’s technically a lager is pretty sneaky too, I would have never guessed... Very well executed! With the orange peel and spicy hop, honestly it drinks kind of like a white IPA, which I don’t entirely mind in this instance. Coincidentally, I happen to have a white IPA from Shorts in the fridge right now. Probably what I’ll drink next!
