Pours a slightly hazy orange with a sudsy white head. Aromas of grassy hops and some yeast. Taste is a tad hoppy but the caramel malts are also there balancing it out. Seems the hops left on the tongue are more predominant in the aftertaste than in the initial sip. Not an outstanding representation of the style but a rather drinkable one that is widely available everywhere in my region.

Good and easy to drink. Mild hop aroma with pale malts. Golden color with a good white head. Crisp, clean and light palate. Highly carbonated. Clean and well-blended flavors. Grassy pale malts with a good hops bitterness throughout. Went well with a meal.

It’s very ok. Pretty average beer. Ended up buying a sixer. Wish I could have gotten a single. Taste is bitter earthy grass. Some malt flavors. Really, just ok.

floydslip (137) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2014
Fairly decent looking burnt orange colored beer with a thin fizzy white head. Somewhat doughy nose with light yeast, mild musty hops, and slight funk. Flavor has some mild sweetness counterbalanced by a little bit of bitterness. The flavor is reminiscent of a squishy honey-topped white bread I used to have when I was a kid. Not unpleasant, but not particularly memorable either.

Pours a slightly hazy light amber golden orange color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is citrusy, light sweetness. Flavor is mildly bitter, with a hint of hoppy citrus. Light in body. Easy to drink.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden orange color. Citrus aroma. Light flavor of earth and citrus. A little too light for my liking, but still decent.
