look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a sample glass.

Appearance: Clear Yellow color with about a finger of white head and a little lacing on the glass.

Smell: Wheat and citrus notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied and smooth, well balanced. Taste of citrus, wheat, and maybe some banana. Flavor was good but not overwhelming.

Overall: Very enjoyable beer. I have had it several times before and never really paid much attention to it until now. For a mainstream import, its pretty good. I will have this beer again.

Serving type: bottle
