look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Big full long lasting white head slowly settled into a nice lacing above a hazy light golden colored beer.

A light aroma of citrusy hops, light grains with some added yeastiness.

Similar to the aroma a light citrus fruit taste with light grains and lighter yeast attributes.

This medium bodied beer has a slight dryish aftertaste with a bit of the grain and citrus tastes sticking around.

Easy drinking but a little to mellow for my tastes.

3.4/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Hazy pale gold with a small white head that leaves just a ring in short order. Lacing are decent just in the top 3 inches.
Smell is pungent green apple and ripe fruit.
Taste is fruity slightly acidic with some slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
Overall a refreshing Belgium Pale with a smooth medium dry finish.
Best by date: 11 Aug. 13.
