Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, and pine. Clear yellow-gold with a lasting, white head. Dry, fruity, and bitter. Light-medium bodied with refreshing carbonation. ysgard (1) - - JUN 21, 2013 does not count
The aroma is citrus mango and a touch of flowers. Bright toasted orange color with just a small lack of head persistence. The taste is tangy and dank hops up front with a clean finish. Could use a touch of either brumalt or melanoidin. Caramel is faint, just barely there. Drinks quick and clean. A great surprise from a limited run house beer.
