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

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass

A) This is a very light amber color. Quite clear, you can see through it. There was nearly a 2 finger head. The head was not maintained for very long. Not much in the way of lacing.

S) Not really a heavy hitter on the aroma front. There was a hint of caramel sweetness from the malt. It was kind of grainy, very mild hops and grass.

T) The taste followed the nose, but was more pronounced. It was slightly sweet upfront, decent earthy finish.

M) A pretty light body here. It's not quite to the point where I would refer to it as thin and watery, but it can consider this a written warning. The carbonation is to my liking. The aftertaste is decent.

O) This is decent. No wow factor.... It's crisp, fairly refreshing, and it goes down easy enough.
