very nice aroma this brew has a fine malt and hop character to the taste as well. nice caramel malt provides backround to a tangerine citrus flavor slightly bitter with a sting and juicy. nice fuller body and mouthfeel with a burnt orange appearance. really nice lower alcohol brew.

EithCubes (5071) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Draft from JCís. Pours transparent deep orange with lovely copper low-lights and a soapy beige head. Nose pleasantly of caramel and crystal malt and balanced hops, orange peel with lighter floral and spicy notes. Thereís a nice English character to the nose but itís also clear this is half-American. Taste is very dry with medium bitterness, light body, caramel and a little earthy toffee, some crystal coming through but itís minimal, the hops are soapy, mild citrus and a little noble spice. Hints of wood and grass, but theyíre only hints. Very nice cleansing hops but the character becomes a little bland with volume. Still, a great session ale and quasi-English -- easy to down five or six.

NikkTwist (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Draft at Strangeloves. Light amber. Foamy ring. Seeing a slight oily sheen off the top. Very nice golden wheat flavors. One of the better American versions of this style.

Draft at Fermentation. Glowing orange pour with a bubbly white head. Nose is zesty citrus with hints of spiciness, bready and biscuit malts. Sweet citrusy flavor with toast malts and light note of grassy spice on the back end. Pretty tasty.
