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

A - Clear amber in color with a frothy/creamy white head with a hint of orange coloring. Lightly carbonated. Head is somewhat retained throughout the tasting. 3.75/5

S - Caramel and an earthy graininess are the first notes to hit my nose. There is also a slight citrus note in the background. Herbal hops. Slight butteriness. 3.5/5

T - Caramel is the first flavor. Slight butteriness like the nose. Toasted bread finish. Grassy flavor to the hops. Almost no lingering flavor or bitterness. Very light in the bitterness category. 3.75/5

M - very light. finishes wet but disappears quickly. Slight carbonation burn, more than expected. 3.5/5

O - Very drinkable beer. Not overly complicated in it's flavor profile, but is still very enjoyable. Very nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. 3.75/5
