look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from a growler
light yellow color, pretty clear, small head when first poured, very little retention with a very small amount of lacing

very light smell, dissipates quickly, grainy and slightly sweet, a little grassy

grain forward but not overly sweet, small amount of bitterness with no hop character, clean but still slightly fruity

a bit over carbonated, heavy mouth feel, nicely coats the tongue but not slick, finishes semi dry

overall this is a good beer, fits style nicely. I could drink a lot of this on a hot day but there really was nothing special that will keep me coming back
