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

Pours a clear copper body with two fingers of off-white head with decent retention. Aromas are largely biscuity, with leafy hops. Taste is very biscuity and toasty, with hops that are less earthy than those of an Oktoberfest but less fresh and vibrant than those of most pale ales. "Leafy" is the best word I can think of to describe its bitterness. Overall, well-balanced, pleasant to drink for many rounds.

3.78/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a golden color with a slight tinge of orange, small sized head that fades quickly, no lacing on the glass.

Smell has a sweet malt aroma mixed with a light grassy presence.

Taste is a well balanced between malt and grassy hops, neither is overly strong to overshadow the other aspect but that also means there's no shining star, carbonation is decent with a slick mouthfeel, very easy drinking and sessionable.
