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

Pours hazy amber with a small head.
Nose shows orange peel, wheat, lemon and sweet clean malt.
Flavours include wheat and lemon along with some vegetable characters and spices.
Carbonation is a bit excessive really.
Pretty weak, not all that interesting.
