look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A- poured a semi-cloudy orange with some visible carbonation. The head is a foamy white, lasts a while, and leaves some nice lacing.

S- mild, with some citrus notes (maybe grapefruit) and a little bit of malt.

T- again, pretty mild. Little distinct about the flavor. Slight malt. Slight hops but nothing really stands out.

M- not bad. not to thin, a little bit of carbonation.

O-an adequate beer, decent mild falvor but nothing really interesting or notable going on.
