look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A very nice brew to have with nice weather.

A - poured a hazy yellow with a mountain of white head that lasted forever and then some.
S - Lemon, that is the main thing you pick up on the flavor.
T - Lemon and some smooth buttery bread type of flavor, nice though, very pleasant, non-offensive.
M - Some breadiness, but it's kind of plain at this point, not much aftertaste and it just kind of leaves you hanging.
D - It's a good beer. It is probaby best with foods that are not going to overpower. Maybe some white fish and breads. Also, probably better enjoyed in the summer months than when it's cold outside.
