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

Appearance: Amber; medium head; good lacing

Aroma: Light malt; light grassy aroma; light citrus

Taste: Juicy malt on start with a quick, light hit of hops; light citrus in the mid; finishes a little tart, bitter, dry and crisp; pretty refreshing and sessionable, but not complex

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
