look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a 22 oz bottle into a pilsener glass and a tumbler (half for me, half for the Mrs.) with dinner. In both glasses a nice honey orange amber color, just a hint of haze, with bubbles constantly coming up in the glass. In the tumbler not much of a foam, but in the pilsener glass a thick foam that died down slowly to 1/8" as I drank it down (and stayed there) with thick walls of lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell is faint, even right after pouring. It's not strong - some malt and some hops. Nothing really leaps out at me - not bad, but nothing really good either. Towards the end of the glass as the beer has warmed up some of the hops is a little more present, but again, it is faint.

Taste is pretty good - smooth malts up front followed by a bitter finish. The bitterness is really just right. It's a crisp sort of "aaah" bitterness that finishes the drink but doesn't dominate.

Mouthfeel is a little thick, carbonation does not linger on the tongue, and it goes down smoothly. This combined with that crisp end makes it enjoyable which leads into drinkability.

Drinkability - had I not split this beer with someone else I definitely could have finished the whole thing myself. A nice balanced beer that is very refreshing and a good choice with a meal. I'll have to try it again and see if I think more of it.
