look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured minimal head on a clearer, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is faint; a little grain smell comes through.
The taste is grainy, mild bitterness with caramel which rounds it out nicely.
The texture is crisp but soft with moderate carbonation.
Overall, a nice and easy drink.
