look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

11.2 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, soft-hued, light yellow body with a small, short-lived, white head. No lacing.

Smell: Quick sniff of skunkiness, though it fades out quickly. A tad grainy pils malts with an edge of anticipated sweetness. Faintly bready. Minor hop character.

Taste: Some cereal sweetness greets the tongue with light hint of honey atop the underlying pilsner maltiness. Slightly leafy, herbal-toned hops with little albeit ample bitterness. Faintly fruity. Drying finish with a gentle hint of alcohol on the swallow.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not horrible, no, but, a lackluster example of the style.

Serving type: bottle
