This pours a golden-orange color, with a thin head and intensely heady aromas of caramel malt, orange oil, sweet grass and pressed yellow flower. Smooth and creamy, the strong sweet-malt core takes center stage over secondary accents of pepper and grapefruit rind. Lifting carbonation keeps the palate from feeling too heavy or cloying, and a soft, piny accent adds depth to the finish.
