look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: light golden color.. Frothy 1.5 finger head.. Head sticks around but goes down to a thin film..

Aroma: sweetness upfront, bready notes, slight lemon zest.. Spicey notes, with just a faint hop presence..

Taste: bready at first, spicey zest with a bit of citrus.. Then comes a hop bitterness that quickly goes away as quickly as it comes.. Finishes kind of dry that makes you want more.. Quite refreshing though..

Mf is medium bodied with a light to medium carbonation level..

Very easy to drink beer.. Very well balanced.. Not too much going on, but has enough flavor.. Can easily be a session beer.. Could also be a great gateway brew in my opinion..

Cheers!!
