look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is a clear amber color with a one finger white head.
Aroma is light pine. Some honey sweetness.
taste is heavy pine and slight citrus.
mouthfeel is not as crisp as nelson. Sort of syrupy. Lingering bitterness.
overall this is a little potent for my liking but it's tasty.
would pair nicely with food.
