look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a white color with a greenish tint. The color seems to resemble lime juice. A fluffy head forms and stays around to chat.
Smell: Very light malts, semisweet, pleasantly fruity/flowery.
Taste: Watery, light sweetness, notes of clover honey. Lacking the hop flower taste I typically associate with white beer. No aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, lightly effervescent.
Drinkability: Not bad due to the beer's light character and ease on the palette.
Overall it's not too bad of a brew. Unfortunately, it seems short on the good malt flavors and creaminess, which would definitely bump it a bit in the taste/mouthfeel.
Serving type: bottle
