look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A – Medium apricot gold. Nice off-white head with nice retention and lace.

S – Soft citrus, biscuity malt and honey with a faint twang of copper pennies.

T – Mellow malt with a light herbal bitterne. Bready backend edges sweet before a clean, dry finish.

M – Medium light body with a nice smoothness, but suffers from under carbonation and a thin finish.

O – Some upsides and some downsides render this about par for the style.
