look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours clear amber with a nice sized head and moderate carbonation

S - Malty, fruity aroma

T - A rich, hearty beer with a nice tart, citrusy hop kick.

M - Very smooth and medium-bodied

D - I could consume this beer for countless sessions

A classic micro that is a good place to start for a newbie like myself.
