look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer pours clear golden colour with a slight haze and a full two finger head that fades to a full ring and center cap and has nice light lacing.

The aroma is of sweet pale malt, mild biscuity yeast, citrus and some piney hops.

The taste is fairly malty then citrusy mid way through, a little honey mixed in then a mild pine hop presence finishes the beer off ending mildly dry and slightly peppery. Balanced well!

Mouthfeel is light to medium body and smoothly sweet with medium carbonation.

Overall this beer is balanced, smooth and exceptional! I would recommend this as a crossover beer for someone addicted to crappy macro beer!
