Beer Review, Whitsun Ale

Arcadia Whitsun Ale
Battle Creek, MI
6.2% ABV

Appearance: Hazy light-brown/orange body with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Some bubbles suspended in the body. 3.5/5

Smell: Lots of oranges and bits of citrus. Slightly yeasty, very sweet. 3.5/5

Taste: Very strong with oranges, slightly astringent. Some spices, almost has the kind of spicy bitterness that you'd get from a winter warmer, although this is obviously very different. Very slightly dry on the finish, not unpleasant. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Thicker than expected, coats the tongue. 3.5/5

Drinkability: American Pale Wheat Ales tend to be pretty bad, but this one isn't. It's a drinkable, accessible wheat beer. It's probably meant to be competition for Bell's Oberon, and it's hitting in the same ball park. 3.5/5

Overall: 3.5/5 It was 3.5's all the way down.
