3.3/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Body is clear, orangey-yellow with a 1-finger white head on top. Some bits of lace on the glass.
S: Like a pilsner with some spice, if that makes sense. Also a tad bit lemony fighting a little bit of musty, spent cereal grains.
T: More pale than wheat on the palate - some lemony flavor at the finish stands out, providing some decent bitterness at the back end of the sip. As for the front end. . . well, I get lighter malt flavors (some biscuity or crackery malt), some fruity sweetness, a faint hint of wheat twang and . . . actually, that's about it. Modest lingering lemony bitterness lightens the overall impression, but after a few sips, even that gets lost behind a fruity sweetness lingering on the palate.
M: Decent creamy-type feel; carbonation is modest and not at all harsh or prickly. It's fairly active though. Heft is light.
O: OK. Nothing to write home about, but nothing really offensive about this beer, either.
Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a minimal head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Light bready malts, some vanilla, Ringwood yeast, and grassy hops.
Taste: Same as above with a little bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation. Nothing exciting.
Overall: Decent summer beer. Very simple. Not too crazy about the Ringwood yeast too.
