  • Color: Pale Amber
  • Pours a cloudy pale amber color with a half inch white head. Head dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of white foam on top. Watery lacing.

    Aroma is orange citrus and spice with a bit of bread and yeast.

    Taste is very mild and watery. Upfront I taste a floral hop that works into some bready yeast flavors with a spice on the backend.

    Light body with a watery mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

    Overall, I am a little disappointed. It's not bad; I guess I was expecting something different. The spice flavor is strong on the backend and leaves me feeling like this beer is a little off balance. After all that complaining, I have to say that I would have another, it grows on me as I drink it.
