Bottle to mug.
Little head and light on the lace. Nice color, bright and inviting.
Very slight sweet aroma, malty.
Touch of sweetness and low on the hops.
Carbonated well but enjoyably smooth.
I quite enjoyed it, would suggest, good to just sit down and chill out with, not overwhelming.

2.58/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance:
Clear, pale sunflower color with a thin, white head. Retention is horrible with traces of lacing. Gobs of carbonation.

Aroma:
Dull. Musty wheat with a bit of honey. Mostly musty.

Taste:
Follows the aroma closely, unfortunately. Musty wheat with a decent amount of honey notes. Watery, everything about this screams, "watered down!" Faint citrus is detectable, but it's not able to redeem this one.

Mouthfeel:
It's crisp and extremely light with plenty of carbonation. Surprisingly refreshing if you can endure the taste. Finish is a hair on the dry side, we can chalk that up to the honey though.

Overall:
Not a complete wreck, but it's definitely nothing to write home about. If you're looking for something light for back to back drinking, there are plenty of others out there that offer more character and a more enjoyable experience. I couldn't in good faith recommend this to anyone.
