2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy medium gold body with a fluffy white head. The aroma is surprisingly sweet and fruity with sweet potatoes and oranges. The taste is lightly sweet with toasted peanuts and some light hints of orange peels. Actually, this is interesting and fairly drinkable. I am just glad it is a little sweet without being corny.
