3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright orangish red with a full slightly off white head. Aroma contains has a good presence, but actually gives a more soft impression. Pine, orange, grass, and some bready notes are here with none of them really being dominant. Taste feels more grassy than anything else. Lemon notes and hops are easily tasted. Pine and some bready malts are in here as well. LIghter in body, thin in texture but not watery. Bitter throughout tasting with an easy aftertaste of pine and hops. Pretty good overall. A very nice beer.

Decently flavored. floral and citrus flavors. Fairly drinkable. Floral and citrus up front and light piney taste afterwords. Not to heavily carbonated almost lightly. Leaves a slight bitter aftertaste in the mouth. All in all a decent beer for the season.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild citrus hops and chalk aroma. Bright orange, thick and murky looking. Medium bitterness with some metallic background. Lighter body, but still a bit filling for a session ale. It’s just okay.
