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

It smells like light malts, and some noble hops it seems. Sort of lemon-lime in character. I also get a very nostalgic raw/ being brewed smell of grains and hops. Something you only really smell when you are making beer. Also some nice caramelized malts. Not strong, but above average for its complexity.

A sweet malt flavor, very faint hop flavor coming through with a mild but satisfying hop bitterness. a slight cocoa taste at the very end. Reminds me of some of the nice Euro Lagers.

Definitely not something I am clambering for, but I can sure see why people like it so much. Solid.
