Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head.

Light sweetness from the malt and honey in the aroma.

Light, almost fruity flavors. Some hop notes present, but not bitter. Wheat notes also present.

Light body and medium-high carbonation for the mouthfeel.

Very easy drinking beer. Good for those who want an alternative to the typical macros, but more experiences beer drinkers will probably find this bland.

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

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Clear golden yellow color with almost no head. Minimal white lacing. Mediocre carbonation.

Smell: Wheat, grainy malts, crackers, and honey.

Taste: Pretty much the same as the nose, very sweet.

Mouthfeel: Almost watery. Light bodied.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink. Sort of bland. Crisp and clean.

Ending notes: Overall, not too impressive. I didn't hate it, but I won't be getting this one again anytime soon. Average summer beer at best.

A sweet tasting beer. Crisp and refreshing.

Yellow colored body with a white head.

Smells like citrus, hops and honey.

Tastes hoppy with sweetness from the honey and a strong citrus finish.

Light mouthfeel, high carbonation.

I like to drink this beer once in a while. Very refreshing.
