Appearance - 4/5
Looks refreshingly crisp. A very clear golden color. Little head retention. Can see the carbonation flow. Looks appetizing.

Smell - 3/5
Smells like a standard lager. (This might just be my lack of refinement, but all lagers kind of smell the same to me)

Taste - 4/5
Citrusy. The lager taste is not as strong as in other lagers, which for me is a plus, because usually the lager taste is overpowering. The lager taste is balanced nicely with the other flavors, which would be citrus, and perhaps honey. The beer has a mild sweetness to it which is nice.

Mouthfeel - 3.75/5
The beer feels light, perhaps a little too watery. It is not as crispy as other lagers, but rather seems to have a bit of creaminess to it. The carbonation was just right, not over-carbonated or under-carbonated.

Overall - 3.6/5
Overall, a decent lager, one that I actually felt that I liked. But still, nothing super special. Just a rather quality lager.
