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

Pours a light golden-tan with a decent head that dissipated after a few minutes. Left plenty of lacing on the glass. quite clear with rising bubbles. A pretty nice looking beer.

Smells of light grass, malt and a little bit of sweet hops. A pleasant, but weak overall smell.

Tastes of malt with some spicy hops and a hint of sweet caramel. Very mild bitterness. Nice aftertaste.

A crisp and clean feel in the mouth. Quite pleasant.

Drinkability is quite good. No complaints at all in this department. More like a lager than a typical pale ale in this category.

Overall impression is that it's a fine brew, tho not especially outstanding or noteworthy. Still, I'll give it a pretty good rating.

I could see myself picking up a sixer of this for a barbeque or day in the pool.
