3.65/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A- 3.5 The 420 pours a very clear straw yellow with a decently sized 1/2 finger white head that isn't uniform. The lacing is pretty slippery but sticky in spots. Carbonation is visible.

S- 4 I like this. It doesn't provoke senses of anything exotic, but I do get a bit of a citrus hop and a sweet, malty backbone. The combo definitely says caramel.

T- 3.5 Not all that complex, but a decent mix of mild hops and malts balance it well. It hits with a bitterness that lasts but a second or two then turns to the malt. It is a little bland, but not bad. Finishes fairly sweet.

M- 3 Pretty light in body and a high carbonation give this an average feel. A little on the watery side though the carbonation helps a tad in that sense.

D- 4 Despite not being crazy good in any one area I feel I could drink several of these. It goes down easily and has a good enough aroma and taste. It is balanced. I'd imagine it would be even better fresh off the line or on draft. A refreshing, easy-to-drink brew that's worth a shot.
