Widmer Citra Blonde Summer Ale

Widmer's Citra Blonde Summer Ale poured a clear, amber color with a pen width white head. The aroma has plenty of orange with some cloying malt hiding underneath. The body is sweet up front, and the mouthfeel is thin with almost no carbonation. There are some big hops on the finish and a long, lingering dry bitterness.

Overall there are some great aspects to this beer; primarily the citrus notes and hopped finish but it is just not a complete beer. The mouthfeel up front lacks and the midddle of the beer is flat and bland.  This beer has great potential and is a passable Summer sipper but just falls a little short.
