look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a bright golden yellow color with a splash tea, giving it some copper hues. The head was small, white, and faded fast. The lacing is heavy.
Smell: The aroma is a bit reserved but does have some hints of pale malts, sweet sugars and a light fruity attribute and a hit of citric hops. Clean.
Taste: Beginning to end this is a simple straightforward beer. To me it is built as a replacement for water. Maybe a session beer while shoveling Alaskan snow or mowing the lawn Southern USA; it is a beer that is pleasant but small and simple (even has a surprisingly low ABV. The taste starts fruity, and a bit like candied malts. The flavor gradually tips the scale into a light citrus hop attribute but all the while it maintains the underlying sugary water feel and taste it starts off with. Finish is mild and mostly clean, yet dry and lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was a medium-to-light body that is very smooth.
Drinkability: This is a working mans drinking beer. Small and easy to session, it is very refreshing despite the fact that it lacks a bit of uniqueness.
Hope this is helpful.
