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

Sampled from a 12 oz bottle. This one pours a cloudy gold with a small beaded head. Very mild aroma of wheaty sweetness with some spicy hops, & a hint of clove. Very light in the mouth with spicy hops & high fruitiness. Understated flavors of banana, lemon, tart green apple are evident. Finish is clean with some gentle peppery bitterness. Well balanced, easy-drinking, but somewhat uneventful brew.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Has a nice hazy yellowish-golden color. Left an interesting settlement in the bottle. Had about 1 finger of white head with nice lacing. Not a strong smell, hints of wheat and citrus. Taste is sweet, with a detectable honey-ness, and pleasant lingering bitterness. Feels smooth and refreshing in the mouth. Overall, an enjoyable beer but not particularly noteworthy.
