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

Pours a nice golden orange. Smell is grainy, dry, and some citrus. Taste is not that complex to me. It is very dry and grainy... Not very balanced, and the ABV seems higher than it is. This one goes straight to my head without any nuanced enjoyment. It feels light, but the finish is so dry that it hurts drinkability. It has more of a "liquor" feel to it than a beer feel. Maybe that's just the style, but I don't particularly care for it. I don't think I would buy this one again. It just seems like alcohol for the sake of alcohol... nothing special to give it taste enjoyment.
