16 oz can sent to me in a stealth package by howardf. Thanks, man. Served up in a standard pint.

A: Pours up a golden yellow body. Held to the light, it is an incredibly vibrant golden. The beer is clear with a lazy carbonation. The pour got me about two fingers of bright white head. It falls slowly to a thin but complete top cap. Lots of lace sticks all over the glass.

S: Nice citrusy hop presence. Getting a good amount of orange rind and lemon. Slightly floral as well. Not coming across incredibly bitter, but it is very fragrant in the hop realm. Just a touch of malt coming through but it is dominated by the hops.

T: A lot like the nose. Starts off all hops. Citrus notes of orange and lemon. Getting that bite you would get if you were chewing on orange skin. Slightly bitter/hoppiness, but nothing too crazy. Just enough to let you know whats what. Little bit of malt on the backend. Pale and biscuity. Damned tasty.

M: Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium with a crisp carbonation level. Finish is nice and dry. ABV is in check and barely noticeable. Bitter on the palate. Aftertaste is all citrus and orange skin.

OA: Damned tasty Pale Ale. Everything is where it should be and comes together beautifully. In the battle of the pint can Pale Ales, I think Daisy Cutter has the edge but Osiris isn't far behind at all. I would be more than happy to see either of those beers in my local beer stores. Damned good beer and it will disappear quickly for sure.
