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

Appearance: Clear, light amber with a small, but fluffy, white head. Head dissapates to a thin film and leaves patches of lace on the glass.

Smell: Aroma is dominated by caramel malts with a little bit of grassy hops in the background.

Taste: More of the same. Malty sweetness upfront followed by a little spicyness. Finishes with a slight, lingering bitterness. Overall very balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium with assertive carbonation.

Drinkability: Very good. This would make a nice session beer.
