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

The beer pours a murky light amber bordering on dark mustard yellow with a big creamy white head with sticky lacing leaving creamy patches like spider webs on the glass. The body is clear of particles (obviously) but has a murky look. The beer is transparent with some bubbles, but murky. The beer smells wet and grassy with notes of slightly citrus light caramel malts. From the can the malt smell is much more potent and sweet syrupy, reminding me of rice pudding and candy. The beer tastes quite sweet for a lager with light biscuit, grass and slight citrus. The beer touches the tongue as light citrus apple juice before moving into grassy hops with light citrus and slight bread and then opening into syrupy sweet on sides of the mouth but never striking cloying levels. The aftertaste is slightly sweet and grassy, but overall quite pleasant. The mouthfeel is light and fizzy, leaving the mouth wet with saliva and slightly dry with bitter lingerings. Overall this is a nice beer to put back. I bought a six pack of the cans to session them, and session them I did. The sweet taste is a little too much for what I would normally like, and I kind of wish the grass was more there, but overall a lovely mediocre chugger. This beer will not blow you away, but is solid where it counts.
