look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear really light amber color with a nice big frothy white head.

Aroma is malty some light caramel notes and earthy hints some light grassy hop notes.

Taste is like the smell a nice malt base with caramel notes, Some good earthy notes that lead to grassy hops for a finish. Nice lighter easy drinking favorable brew.

Mouthfeel is nice medium body with fairly peppy carbonation that suits this brew perfectly. Mouthfeel and carbonation defiantly aide the flavor on this one.

Overall for the style it is a great beer maybe should hit all fours easy drinking and favorable. Not something i would consume normally but would be a good session brew.
