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

Bottle: standard 355mL brown bottle, decent label - better than your standard macro.

Appearance: pours amber-gold with a very limited head that drops to a thin foam.

Aroma: a good combination of floral hops & a combination of decent grains. Some faint bread malt backing.

Taste: follows the nose very closely, but with extra emphasis on the sweet grains and floral hops. Quite refreshing.

Aftertaste: disappears quite quickly - lucky it's a good sessional.

Mouth feel: again, bang on. Fine yet busy carbonation bringing the flavours through, but more importantly making for a very refreshing ale. Quite thin in body.

Overall: good beer, great sessional summer beer. Not entirely sure it's worth the price - I'd rather a Brooklyn Lager for the price.
