3.55/5  rDev +16.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma
Slight grassiness from the hops along with a bit of malty tones, very reminiscent of other german pils/dunkels I've had

Mouthfeel
Medium high carbonation, bit watery on the palette maybe a bit less attenuation, some crystal malt would help. Bit of bitterness along the sides of the mouth, but relatively mild.

Appearance
Poured to decent 1/2" or so head in a New Belgium goblet, but very quickly dissipated. This was a very disappointing, with a bit better head retention and mouthfeel I think this could be very good instead of just a decent session beer. Mahoghany/ruby in appearance through the goblet.

Taste
Some slight malty notes, bit of caramel maybe. Grassiness from the hops comes through. Pretty good, not quite great.

Drinkability
Very, meant to be a sessionable beer and I think it comes through on that.

Overall
I like this and feel as if this could be a good fallback session beer if in need of something to drink a decent amount of but don't want a macro brew. With a bit more presence on the palette (less water) plus a better head retention I think this could easily be a much better beer.
