look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

The color is a very pale pinkish orange and the head is a good two fingers of puffy white froth. The beer is brilliantly clear and the carbonation is a nice steady stream of constant bubbles.
The aroma is very yeasty and bready with a fairly good presence of hops.
I pick up a good bit of phenols and it is very estery also. There is a fair bit of bitterness in the finish that lingers for some time but the aftertaste left by the flaws are kinda hard to get past.
Light to medium mouthfeel.
Not very drinkable IMO.
