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

Appearance - wheat beer appearance with small head.

Smell - malty, bready

Taste - light and well balanced. A nice refreshing and easy to drink Pale Ale. Some mineral flavor to the water but still decent.

Mouthfeel - fine for a 5% beer.

Overall - a sessionable and easy to drink pale ale. Not too hoppy and adequate. Adequate is probably the best description for this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear golden-infused amber color; the fluffy white head leaves a bit of lace here and there

Smell: Biscuity malt provides a backdrop for a bit of lemongrass

Taste: Light and biscuity, up front, with a growing sense of lemongrass arriving by mid-palate; clean and refreshing, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nothing over the top here; just a nice and refreshing APA
