Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- golden color with a few stray particles floating throughout, no concerns
- small head that leaves just a few swirlies

The Aroma:
- artificial sweet aroma matched by a sweet flavor that just doesn't do it for me

The Taste:
- almost like a blood orange sweetness, that just leaves a bit of cloying displeasure

The Verdict: This is a decent brewery, but this one lags some of their better brews

Adam's Notes
The Look:
- slightly cloudy yellow with slight orange tint
- lotsa bubbles, but, the head is gone quickly

The Aroma:
- yeah, that is a lager

The Taste:
- uh...what the heck is that?
- can you say diet sprite or 7up?

The Verdict: Blech
