A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with a couple of hints of orange and light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall creamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus hops (just a touch of orange and lemon) along with some light biscuit malts.

T: The overall flavor is quite similar to the smell, it starts out with light amounts of biscuit malts with a touch of caramel which are quickly overtaken by the citrus hops, which are still somewhat light in flavor of orange and lemon.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Somewhat crisp.

O: Very easy to drink and enjoyable with the lighter body, lower ABV, and well balanced flavors (between the

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle a lil above fridge temp into a pint glass

Clear deep golden. Nice soapy slightly off white head. Ok retention with some good lacing.

Simple, low key aroma. Mild toasted cereal grains. Slight grassy hop.

Simple taste. Easy drinking. Good balance. Grassy, citrus hop meets toasted grain. Very mild hop bitterness.

Light and refreshing.

A nice cheap summer drinker that's easy to put down. That being said i wouldn't buy this again.
