Poured light yellow, with frothy white head. Left ample lacing. Beer seemed thin looking, which might be normal for the style, but even so it looked kind of weak.

Smells very light, which I'm positive is normal for the style. Malts followed by hops, but just barely. Bit of citrus at the end.

Taste is nicely balanced between malt at start and clean citrus end. Citrus is barely differentiated from general hop bitterness. There isn't anything to write home about but the beer isn't unpleasant to drink.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, and probably the strength of the beer. It doesn't feel too fizzy or thin. Drinkability is aided by these traits, and the beer goes down very fast, especially when drinking straight from the can (the other ones were gone before I knew it).

Not a particularly memorable beer, but easy to drink. Add it all up and it comes out to be an average brew.
