3.33/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a hazy straw-gold with a one finger foamy white head. Good retention on the head and decent lacing, but not too sticky.
S - Citrus, lemon zest, and light wheat notes. Somewhat dry smelling and grassy, but not hoppy or malty. Has a bit of a funky "mothball" aroma that is somewhat offputting but not too strong.
T - Wheat and citrus for the most part, with a nice toasted bread taste in the finish. Oddly enough it reminds me of that classic Yuengling lager taste. The citrus could be kicked up a notch as could the hops, the brew is a bit bland.
M - Lightly bodied and lightly carbonated with a crisp mouthfeel.
O - Overall, not a bad summer beer for a hot day. Easily sessionable.
