look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours out a clear, pure amber color with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of suds across the surface. Lacing is small and spotty, with little stick.

Smell - Aroma is a nice mix of caramel, fruity esters and some floral hoppiness.

Taste - Starts with earthy and floral notes, backed by a moderate caramel backbone. Honey sweetness. Hops turn grassy and bitter in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation. Goes down easy enough, then a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Eh, it's okay. The flavor is a bit too sweet at times, then too grassy/waxy in bitterness for my liking. Decent, but probably not something I'd buy again.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance has a ruby red color supporting a fair head that slowly dissispates leaving spotty lace. Smell has a nice balance between sweet caramel malt and the floral hop aroma. Taste faulters a bit from the aroma in not having that full flavor balance. Mouthfeel is lighter than medium with good carbonation.
