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

A - Pours honey gold with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly

S - Sweet grains come through, toasted malts

T - Toasted biscuits come through strong with grassy hops, dry tart flavor comes through as well on back end

M - Medium light body, very crisp and dry finish

O - Seems like it would be easy to drink a lot of these but nothing really stands out to make it memorable. Definitely something to quench the thirst
