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

Poured from bottle into a Sam Adams lager glass, served cold

Very clean and slightly hazy golden yellow with a creamy half inch head nice small bubbles, and surprisingly decent lacing on the glass. Head dissipated appropriately and the carbonation was good

Aroma mostly malt with some biscuit, very little hay or grain

Taste mostly malt with some hop at the finish, slight apricot as it warmed, a little bit of alcohol aftertaste

Mouthfeel was refreshing, slightly dry, with very bright carbonation, finishing dry. Reminds me of a session beer or ale, very drinkable something that would please or at least not offend non-crafters in a crowd. This is a very good bridge beer for those new to crafts.

Overall I like this type of beer, and appreciate Terrapin offering it. By including it, they show that their brewing chops are very virtuoso.
