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

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 6%.

Appearance: It has a tall soapy head which settles out quickly leaving not much lacing. The beer itself has a clear golden body with some visible carbonation.

Smell: There is a white bread like maltiness with light candy like notes in the background. It also has a slight hop presence.

Taste / Palate: There is not a lot going on here. It has a light white bready like malt base with a quick hint of sweetness, a slight touch of grainy alcohol and then a clean dry finish with light hop notes.
